Façade cladding with W.S. Tyler Architectural Mesh LARGO-NOVA 2034

The Maison des Sports is in the heart of the French town Talence. The sports university was designed by the architecture firm JL Faye. The architects wanted to give the building a modern look – inside and outside.


Striking features of the façade include the overhanging, illuminated boxes, where portraits of athletes from different sports are displayed. Custom-fit, stainless-steel wire mesh was installed around these boxes by W.S. Tyler.

The architects chose LARGO-NOVA 2034 for the exterior façade. The combination of round and flat wires gives the mesh type a very extensive appearance, which reflects light homogenously. With an open area of 58%, the mesh also acts as effective sun shading for the premises behind it.

In total, 1,471 m² of W.S. Tyler architectural mesh were used to clad the façade of the Maison des Sports.
