Atelier Koller and Scheurwater/vandenHoven won the first prize in a competition for a new mediatheque in the French school in the Hague. The main objective of our proposal was to create a welcoming study environment. Key to the design is a 43 meter long book case. This allows for virtually all books to be placed along the wall. In doing so, room was made for a clear and pleasant library layout with various study areas and an information desk. In the heart of the space stands an especially designed digital reading table. Sixteen iPads are integrated in the table and can be stored in small drawers with lids that are reminiscent of old school desks. Outside school hours, this reading table can be used as a conference table such as for meetings with parents. Part of the renovation was the refurbishment of the adjacent auditorium and IT-classroom and the creation of a connection with the new mediatheque in form and function.
