Renovation of Palais des sports, Cherbourg
The Palais des sports is located in the immediate neighbourhood of the historic center of Cherbourg. The renovated building retains the main characteristics of the existing emblematic equipment (its urban character, the folds of the roof and its warm atmosphere). The volumes have been redesigned to promote the functional and convivial aspect of the premises, around the two major sports : handball and basketball.
The roof is imagined as a living, dynamic “leaf”.
The front f the building is sleek, with careful detail and consists of metal panels that capture and emphasize the variations of ambient light.
Openings are created to make access to the public and to let the new sports halls appear from the outside.
This renovation-extension thus strengthens the link of the Chantereyne sports complex with the city center of Cherbourg and its users.[ + ] detail [ – ] detail
