The relationship between the city center and the riverbanks is rethought with this building, a leisure center that attracts citizens and makes them stay closer from nature. To do so, the building forms a promenade that links the river and the church, with stunning views over the valley.

The walkway goes around the bar: a clear space with views over the river. Both in the beginning and the end of the walkway, stairs provide access to the lower floor. The play center is located there, illuminated with two spacious courts and with direct access to the riverbanks.
