Art & Build design a striking, metal clad sports and leisure complex for Thales Communications’ new campus.
With their new 85,000 sq m campus already under construction and designed by Art&Build, Thales Communications requested a new leisure centre for their employees. To be built on the Lot D site in Gennevillier’s Carré 92 business park, the building stands out as a finely chiselled sculpture featuring a sleek metallic facade within which openings are created in alignment with the bands of cladding. Pedestrian and security access is via vertical slots in the buildings mass. Leisure facilities are to be located on the ground and first floors, with office spaces fitted out on the second floor, giving onto a generous rooftop terrace. The overall floor space totals some 2,215 sq m.
