The new media library is set in the context of a richly abundant built heritage and landscape.
It is located in the town of Pélissanne in Provence, formerly a fortified town, which has preserved a large number of town houses of great heritage value. One of these is Maureau House in the heart of the town, together with its park, which are now home to the media library.
The positioning of the media library respects the integrity of the park and the house. It sets up a dialogue between two eras, two dimensions, by opposing the verticality of the volume.
This project has been longlisted in the cultural building category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
