The existing construction is composed of a main building, and two secondary elements on each side, both are two storeys high. All the service spaces are gathered in the main building to free the wings of the building for the four required functions. Flexibily, sobriety and respect for the existing building summarize the goals of this rehabilitation project.
On the ground floor, in the southern wing, a third place space is created, it is an informal space that allows interactions between the visitors of the building. To the north, a multipurpose space will host conferences, expositions and concerts. On the first floor, the media library is divided between a reading room for adults and a playing and reading room for children
The old stone walls are left apparent inside the library, the ground flooring is dark concrete and sometimes perforated metal for acoustic performances, above, an oak floorboards flooring offers a cosy atmosphere to all the reading areas, also, a wood fiber ceiling was chosen for acoustic comfort.
