In Paris, land is rare and expensive. It is on the site previously occupied by the Jules Ladoumègue stadium that the walls of a new Maintenance and Storage Site (SMR) for the T3 tramway line have just been built.

Today, it includes a soccer field, a rugby field and as a buffer between them and the noise of the traffic, a long building housing tennis courts.

On the east side, which faces the sport fields, the Danpalon® wall is covered by a horizontal wooden lattice filter. Dietmar Feichtinger, the project architect, designed it as “a kind of artificial landscape, evocative of the synthetic grass”.

It’s a theme that runs through the building”, concludes Dietmar Feichtinger.
