French Skate Park



Don’t breathe too hard, you might go into anaphylactic shock, if you’re allergic to peanuts. Bang Architectes turned an old peanut factory into a vibrant and modern skate park in Calais, France. ( photos by Julien Lanoo)

The revamped building features increased natural lighting, achieved by removing the east and west walls and replacing them with metal mesh that allows spectators to watch inside. The mesh is gradually perforated from top to bottom, controlling sunlight. It is backed up with an acoustic curtain wall to shelter skaters from wind and dampen any noise to nearby houses.
