We had to build the library in a recently built municipal hall of little architectural interest.
The place’s main asset was its great volume that could be opened up under the cover of the hall.
In this large space we fit a large object which corresponds exactly to the measurements of the place.
It’s almost like a piece of furniture featuring a 200 m² mezzanine as a reading room.
It does not refer to the world of construction so as to not belong to the same category as the hall.
