The cultural centre Louis Aragon and library Boris Vian were grouped in a single building built in the 1980’s set in the heart of the city. The building, entirely introverted, was crossed by a pedestrian link gallery connecting with the different entities. The absence of real entrances impoverished the external spaces which were completely abandoned by the residents.
Our intervention consisted in :

  • the demolition of the urban gallery, the rehabilitation of the library into a “médiathèque”, the reorganization of the circulations, entrances and functions
  • the creation of a new glazed volume for conferences and small shows for 50 in the central void left by the demolished gallery
  • the requalification of the external spaces with the rehabilitation of the new public square to the west and the creation of a new entry for the “médiathèque” to the south

In a very monotonous environment and spaces darkened by the depth of the original buildings, the use of colours allowed us to give new readability and luminosity to the new functions.
