Gymnasium in Matemale

The project consists of a gymnasium for a school located in Matemale (France), near the Pyrenees. The new building consists of a single volume with a constructed area of 1,080m2.

The mission of Windmill has been to design and calculate the structure to cover the open space of 24x44m, being configured by means of a metal structure, with braced porches and beamed roofs.

The main challenge has been to design a structure of large spans capable of supporting the high snow load and the seismic action of the site.
