Jean Lamour Gymnasium / Studiolada
Textual content description offered by the architects. Jean Lamour Gymnasium is a big picket prism mendacity on a concrete mattress. Its picket framework impressed by the agricultural vernacular constructions can cross lengthy distances, creating huge inside volumes. The constructing brings acoustic, thermal, and visible consolation, in contrast to different sports activities amenities by using native supplies and a certified workforce.
The constructing is located in a small sloped plot beneath the Scarpone Boulevard. To 1 aspect there may be the center faculty, to the opposite the workplace constructing and to the opposite the plot for the longer term residential constructing. The gymnasium is contained inside a 32mx36mx12m quantity rhythmed by a grid of 2mx2mx2m that organizes all areas and the construction.
The plan consists of technical rooms (locker rooms, restrooms, places of work) located on the aspect of the constructing, overhung by two small sports activities rooms that permit the view of the primary sports activities space from above. The outside envelope is wrapped by giant Douglas boards put in like a fishnet impressed by the inside picket construction. Every facade has just one huge opening.
Constrained to cross 24 meters to create the big inside quantity of the primary sports activities court docket utilizing solely massif wooden as the primary construction, an elaborate picket framework was designed. Composed of 17 gantries forming lattice beams, the picket framework is assembled at every node by metallic connectors traversing from one finish to a different. This system enabled the creation of a rhythmed picket construction capable of cross lengthy distances utilizing solely large wooden.
The challenge of the gymnasium responds to the factors of a bioclimatic structure. It takes benefit of its atmosphere and it blends in fairly naturally. It was a alternative to make use of pure, stable, pragmatic options inscribed within the architectural idea. On this manner, the employment of refined, fragile, and heavy units for upkeep is minimized. The utilization of the constructing as a gymnasium has elevated the exigencies when it comes to development high quality.
The principle component of the constructing is wooden. Aside from the concrete basement, the overall construction employed on this development consists of straightforward picket beams bolted to 1 one other following the precept of a dry development website, quick and financial. By these meanings, the constructing presents a really optimistic balance-sheet regarding its gray power (the required power for the development of the constructing). The day it might be dismantled, its parts can completely be sorted out and be reemployed in different usages (the notion of total value until the top of the constructing’s life).
