Aubrilam fits out the Roland Garros site!20 May 2019 - New project
The qualifying matches for the French Open have begun, and this year Roland Garros will have a brand new setting to welcome the world’s top players.
Started by the French Tennis Federation (FFT) in 2015, the upgrade, which is due for completion in 2021, follows a blueprint based on complete renovation of the site. Opening out into the city, greening of urban spaces, user comfort, visual consistency… Today we are already beginning to see a new environment which echoes the latest trends in exterior design.
Aubrilam has been retained to fit out the paths and entrances of the sports facilities:
Dôme XL columns between 4 and 8m high, fitted with BEGA floodlights arranged in clusters and tapering to a metal spike, provide dynamic lighting and act as vertical visual markers. The wooden parts are enhanced with our new shade “La Mer” and they blend seamlessly into the site, subtly accentuating the roadways.
To support the user experience, 5 customised signage columns have been developed in partnership with the Empreinte Signalétique company. They mark out the space while remaining true to Roland Garros’ emblematic colours and charter.
