School and sports complex Cossy, Nyon VD

New infrastructure for town development

The districts in the north of Nyon are expanding. The town is therefore planning a school and sports complex, Cossy. The complex accommodates 480 children and comprises public sports facilities with gyms and a swimming-pool.

Well embedded in the district in town planning terms, the facility will create a clearly defined, public, park-like space with a large pool, meadows and trees.

Both in architectural terms and also visually, the elongated school building in the centre embraces the swimming-pool and the multi-functional sports hall. All the buildings are designed as pavilions structured with wooden, vertically arranged façades, thereby forming an architectural unity. The infrastructure of the three buildings is linked through their basements.
