Media Library in Chelles, France by Novembre Architecture

Paris-based architecture firm Novembre Architecture unveils its design proposal for the construction of a Media library in Chelles, a town near Paris, France. The site sits between different type of urban tissues including different building patterns. The starting point is to design a building that acts as landmark for the city while keeping to the scale and the identity of the neighborhood. The Media library is optimized by the programmatic objectives and the presence of the cultural center near the site.

The complex will have a total of 3,500 square meters. Its implantation is central in this composition. The architects opt for the continuity between the existing cultural center and the future Media library. The complex is composed of the Media library, an auditorium that can seat 230 people and a HQE building.

The undulated façades are perforated with windows which function as connectors between the interior spaces and outside. Given the site form, the building is shaped in U. The composition attempts to keep to the site's identity creating a prolongation between existing complexes and the future building.

The Media library is HQE, or High Quality Environmental which supposes that the building responds to the sustainable constraints. Unfortunately we do not have information on the "HQE" label, precisely if these are the materials — and what types of materials that will be used for the construction — that make the building "HQE".
