  • Premier Paralympic centre shielded from climatic influences

    The Brazilian Paralympic Centre was built in São Paulo, in the “Fontes do Ipiranga” National Park. Now Latin America’s premier stage for the development of initiatives promoting disability sports, the centre was completed in 2015 and can accommodate 15 of the 23 Olympic disciplines.

    The Centre, designed by L+M Gets, uses a variety of membranes manufactured by Serge Ferrari. The façade features three 3-D panels made from Soltis FT 381 for the highest level of thermal protection, while the upper part of the façade is lined with Précontraint 502 which was easy to install and has a beautiful white finish. Recognized for their many qualities – thermal insulation, flexibility, lightweight, UV and humidity resistance, durability – both materials deliver optimal performance to shield the West façade of the building, thus eliminating the need for air conditioning.
    The golden red colour, developed specifically for this project, blends perfectly with other elements of the building, such as the aluminium composite panels, to evoke gold and bronze medals.
