Paris-based studio Ubalt Architectes has revamped several spaces at France’s National Institute of Sport, Expertise, and Performance (INSEP) as part of its partnership with adidas. The purpose of the renovation was to merge sustainable design with functional structures, creating a clean, minimal space that supports high-level athletes and speaks to the identity of both associations.

The color blue, which relates to both adidas and INSEP, is used for the floors, walls and select furniture items. A large metal cage-like structure, which houses tables for dinner or work, is installed in the center of the living house, dividing up the space for different activities. An area for watching television and playing games is located opposite a relaxed solarium. Elsewhere, a meeting room boasts sleek white furniture, while the locker room is informed by white-tiled decor, metallic frames and mirrors.

Each zone has its own design, yet fits harmoniously with the others due to its shape, color and choice of material. All of the elements come together — with the help of twisting staircases and passageways — to create, what Ubalt Architectes says, is a “large graphic playground.”

Take a closer look at the INSEP space above. Ubalt Architectes completed the project in January 2020.
