Have you ever wanted to go on a seaside holiday? Picture yourself lying on the warm sand, sunbathing or playing in the waves, all in the middle of your neighbourhood… Located in the former Léopold Bellan gymnasium in Bry-sur-Marne, our aquatic centre offers a new getaway destination. Residents who are unable to go away on holiday will now be able to enjoy a new destination for the whole family, at a low price and close to home. Our approach is therefore a truly social one that promises to continue Léopold Bellan’s philanthropic endeavours. As such, we use simple architectural systems that subtly evoke sensations linked to the beach.
