The very simple form of the building gives it a serene, silent presence, facing the majestic landscape of the Haute-Maurienne.
And this configuration is why the site was chosen for the project. The linear configuration and horizontal thrust of the building (which is less than 7 metres high, and around 60 long) has resulted in a stretched-out architectural entity that occupies the site, but without dominating it.
Situated outside the village, the Espace nordique has a solitary, autonomous character. It faces the slopes and the training circuits, at the starting points of the different trails.
