Azur Arena is a multifunctional space designed in 2013 by the architectural practice of Auer Weber and it is located in Antibes, France.

The arena uses dynamic lighting displays to invite the visitors inside and the project is in the Trois Moulins industrial area of the city, splitting the site into the business park to the West and a planned park to the South, while the north-east side hosts a sport infrastructure and abundant natural vegetation.

The site is triangular with roads delineating it and they dictated the placement of the trampoline hall and of the sport arena with a shape determined through functional sequences and layout assignment. The sport arena can host 5000 spectators with the public areas spread over the two main floors and it is connected to the trampoline hall through a joint shell with a canopy providing shade to the eastern courtyard.

The large number of entry points improves the overall flexibility and it permits the trampoline hall to be used simultaneously with the arena without hindering the flow of the two events.
