Presentation of the building

The Maison du Sport Vaudois, for the organization of sports camps, was created in Leysin in the middle of the mountains in an idyllic setting. It can accommodate 70 people in 20 rooms, all equipped with showers and toilets. The refectory covers 120 m2 and is illuminated by a large horizontal window giving a superb panoramic view. Due to the configuration of the land, the gym is completely underground and lit with a skylight that opens along the length of the room. Above, outside, is a multi-sport field. The complex also has a theory room, a games area and a lounge for accompanying persons. The architecture is built with small volumes and the exterior facades are entirely made of wood, giving it the look of a mountain chalet.

Emergency lighting concept

The emergency lighting system for this building is based on the use of two energy cabinets. One of them is used for the floors and the second one for the basement. The beaconing elements consist of about 15 flags. The emergency lighting is mainly provided by spotlights and the project manager's own lighting fixtures. In total, more than 70 installations were connected, most of them with the installation of a control converter. This device allows the luminaire to be temporarily disconnected from the switch in the event of a mains failure, so that the energy cabinet can supply it.
