Recently approved by the canoe-kayak regional committee, the TCK (Club Torcy Canoe-Kayak), is officially the first centre of kayaking for people with disabilities in the Ile de France.
The boathouse and clubhouse have a wooden framework with a covered gallery linking the reception and changing rooms.
The central building is embraced by oregon pine louvred blades, blending beautifully with the surrounding landscape. Theses blades let light in and allow for ventilation.
