Conceived in dialogue with the forest, once-present on site, now partially demolished. Its curved façade integrates a fountain and completes a clearing of trees, offering a new space to the public and the inhabitants of the neighbourhood.
This gesture is reinforced by the presence of a lantern on the roof, which acts as a signal to wanderers crossing the park, underlining the civic character of this recreational area. The lightness of the folding wooden façade is in contrast with the brickwork of the building’s interior workshop, inverting the traditional order of building. Above it, a ceiling composed of concrete beams, through which light filters in, evokes a pergola structure.
