Description Les Cols Restaurant

Enjoying a big event in a field protected by a screen covering was the architect’s vision for creating this space. The result, a covering of transparent and lightweight ETFE, with a particular metal support structure, all in a unique setting. The new pavilion is below the level of the natural elevation of the ground. Large walls support the structure of circular tubes, arranged in parallel. 

The ETFE transparent covering is comprised of prestressed double-layers that provide good thermal insulation. A place with a special atmosphere, thanks to the combination of shadows, light and trees that emerge above the ETFE covering. An innovative, comfortable, and elegant place.

Technical Base

ETFE double-layer sheet of 250 microns printed / 250 microns transparent


IASO monolayer system

One single ETFE sheet with double curvature geometry, which sometimes can also be contained in the plane. Generally, reinforced by cables in one direction or both. In monolayer applications, it is critical in the initial tension to introduce a prestressed sheet. Knowledge of the subject and a good calculation process will determine the appropriate prestressed settings so that the coverings will work properly over the years.
