In Paris, the land is rare and expensive. It is on the site previously occupied by the Jules Ladoumègue Sports Stadium that the walls of a new Maintenance and Storage Site (SMR) for the T3 tramway line have just been built.
It was unthinkable that the Jules Ladoumègue would no longer offer its sports facilities to the district – so the stadium was simply rebuilt on the roof of the new building and now faces the ring road. Today, it includes a soccer field, a rugby field, and as a buffer between them and the noise of the traffic, a long building housing tennis courts.
The west wall is Controlite®, with integrated brise soleil to protect from strong light and manage solar gain.
On the Facades east side, the Jules Ladoumègue Sports Complex, which faces the sports fields, the Danpalon® wall is covered by a horizontal wooden lattice filter. Dietmar Feichtinger, the project architect, designed it as “a kind of artificial landscape, evocative of the synthetic grass”.
The covered tennis courts are a nod to the new Paris Philharmonic concert hall, located in the neighboring park of La Villette, with alternating red and transparent Danpalon® panels evocative of piano keys. “Red is a color that also features inside, in various materials, such as the cloth on the ceiling. It’s a theme that runs through the building”, concludes Dietmar Feichtinger making the Jules Ladoumègue Sports Complex an outstanding area for multi-sports.
Maybe you feel that nature is something entirely beyond your control, something that happens to you and you are helpless. Danpal doesn’t have a solution for the rain that ruins your golf game or the hail that damages your car, but there is one way in which you can exercise control over one aspect of nature. With Controlite® system you have an advanced skylight that allows you to decide how much natural light you wish to have inside your building. Controlite® provides optimal comfort during changing daylight conditions, offers skylighting surfaces in larger areas, stands up to weather and the extremes of temperature, and is a sustainable energy saver that lowers your heating and cooling costs.
Controlite® leaves the decision of how much daylight should be admitted into your living and working spaces up to you. Do you want maximum daylight during the cold, dark winter? Do you want to have solar heat blocked in the hot summer? With Controlite®, you decide. The larger panels that are available in commercial and public buildings optimize light and heat for you according to your preference and the season.
Reducing Energy Consumption with Advanced Skylights
For all the people who feel as if they have no control over the amount of money that they pay in utility bills, Controlite® brings welcome news. With this system, energy use from heating, air conditioning, and artificial lighting is significantly reduced. Because the panels can be integrated into energy-efficient building designs, credits can even be earned with the green building rating systems.
