The Story

Visitors to the impressive Hall U Need in Saint-André-Lez-Lille can take the right steps forward thanks to the functional carpet design by Ulster.

With a capacity of 1,650 people over 7000m2, Hall U Need is the second-largest indoor leisure complex in France and the largest in Hauts-de-France. It is also the largest restaurant-bar in the Lille metropolis.

Unique to Europe, this exciting indoor restaurant and leisure complex offers multiple activities to suit all tastes and ages. It includes a 500-seat restaurant, a 10-lane bowling alley, arcade games, a 600m2 children’s play area, a miniature car racing circuit, karaoke and much more.

With so much to do, our designers incorporated signage within the flooring that will help visitors find their way to the various activities. With clear colour codes and descriptions, all they need to do is quite literally follow the arrows.

Fittingly, this ultra-modern complex was once an old textile factory, meaning Ulster was the perfect flooring choice.

The decision was also helped by Ulster’s reputation for meeting the needs of entertainment venues. Our luxury bespoke carpets adorn some of the world’s finest ballrooms and, of course, they can also be found in the leading casinos across North America, including in Las Vegas.

As all these projects prove, Ulster’s ability to combine durability with design ensures our carpets can be both functional and visually stunning.
