The deal was to restructure and extend a former police station, very imposing on the square des Fusillés et des Déportés but disconnected from its urban environment. The accessibility of the equipment is modified: the space becomes an extension of the square at street level. The library is divided into two entities: the reception hall and reading room whose schedules may differ. In the reading room, the qualification of spaces, light and acoustic atmospheres is treated through a roof: the active layer. The interior atmosphere refers to both warm interior of town houses - reading rooms and qualities of factories - open spaces bathed in a diffuse overhead lighting. The media library overlooks a garden which encourages the link between the neighborhoods downtown.
