We have chosen to renovate the Léopold Bellan gymnasium, in Bry-sur-Marne, into a municipal swimming pool designed to be a cultural and sporting epicentre for the town. The aim is to combine sport, socialising, leisure and relaxation. It is important to note that we are inserting the project into an existing sports complex where other kinds of sports are practised. We are committed to creating a key venue that is open to all, and to make it a truly appealing hub for the town and beyond… The same care has been taken with the shared spaces, such as the swimming pool and restaurant, as with the more private ones, such as the changing rooms and relaxation pools. This place will allow visitors to get away for an hour, an afternoon or even longer.
