The extension includes a training room to practice team sports (basketball, volleyball and handball), a gymnasium and a "secondary welcome area" – a user-friendly space for the spectators.

Materials used for the façade are frequently met in the urban landscape, their combination aims at stressing the plastic art of the project.

The internal arrangements and the technical services are guided by a search for ergonomics and for user-friendliness.

The atmospheres are very different in the gymnasium (introversion, concentration bound to the individual practice and the research of the "perfect movement") and in the training room (expressions of anger or enjoyment in team sports).

The public is integrated via an ambulatory separated from rooms by a window.
