Since February 2019, residents in the commune of Celles-en-Hainaut can do sports, dance or take yoga classes in a brand-new sports hall with a look that clearly stands out from the rest. What makes this complex so unique? The building façade and the Rockpanel Woods boards that are applied. The façade panels stand out thanks to the variety in colours and dimensions.
Just next to the Maison de l’Entité in Celles, a municipal park and five outdoor sports areas, stood an old, dilapidated building in need of a face-lift. Architect Michel Meyrant went for a contemporary design that is perfectly integrated into the rural surroundings. It was quite a challenge, as the two main buildings were made of traditional materials such as brick and typical roof tiles while another more recent building consisted of concrete and corrugated sheets.
