Building on its expertise and excellence in the practice of sports, UCPA is opening Sport Station Hostel, urban multiplexes for amateurs, families, clubs and events federated around the meeting of several disciplines. Designed as complete spaces, they offer not only sports facilities, but also a restaurant and a 230-bed hostel in their complex in Paris 19th arrondissement.
UCPA commissioned CUT architectures to shape the concept of these convivial spaces, from the bleachers in the dining areas to the beds in the private areas. Modular tools adaptable to all uses: solo or in teams, evolving according to events and seasons. Places of hospitality expressing UCPA’s collective and sporting universe, reflected in the very design of the furniture, conceived in modules of unique elements combining uses.
Comfort After Effort
In the hostel’s rooms, CUT architectures has chosen to heckle the UCPA DNA while echoing the sporting universe of the communal spaces for a global signature. Here, oak modules are stacked and combined with espaliers to create bespoke bunk beds like micro-architectures, while guaranteeing privacy through wooden panels – either in natural oak or birch pegboard – and curtains that add a hushed note.
All areas are designed in a palette of authentic colors and materials, inspired by the vocabulary of gymnastic apparatus: cognac leather and honey-tinted natural wood recall the aesthetics of the pommel horse. Oak clerestories meet solid beech espaliers at the headboards, serve as structure and ladder for the bunk beds in the dormitories, and support powder-coated steel accessories such as shelves, coat hooks and desks.
Treated in the colors of the UCPA identity, they recall the brightly colored lines of the sports fields. Whether for individuals or teams, these spaces reflect the UCPA DNA, offering a friendly gym atmosphere combined with the warmth of a clubhouse.
