Sports complex – Genk, Belgique 
 
This project is an extension of a sports complex in Genk, Belgium, originally designed by Russian architect Isia Isgour in 1963. It includes the restoration of the existing hall, and the creation of a new multi-sports hall, as well as other new spaces such as a dance studio, a gym, storage and locker rooms, a restaurant and technical spaces. The central idea is to concentrate the different functions in a low building, extending the platform of the existing one. Small closed spaces are situated in a linear entity rising three storeys, which functions as a bridge linking the public front and the rear entrance dedicated to technical access and deliveries. The main hall occupies a central position, flanked by peripheral circulations. The exterior facades are clad in white textured concrete panels whose slight slope give the building the appearance of a hardened sheet floating above the ground.
Program Extension and renovation of a sports complex; 4 multi-sport rooms, dance studio, gym and table tennis, club-house restaurant, locker rooms, storage, audiovisual control and reception. renovation: multi-sport rooms and dojo.
