LEAD CONTRACTOR: G+C GAUTIER ET CONQUET ARCHITECTES
CONSTRUCTION COST: 3.8 M€
SURFACE AREA: 1300 M2
Construction of a cultural complex (media library, auditorium, music practice rooms).
The new building housing the media library and the « Maison de la Culture » (House Of Culture) is a major cultural facility linked to the nursery school across the street on the Pont-de-Chéruy road.
Its eastern facade features a pleasant, light-filled glass gallery, providing a view from the outside of the different entities: the media library to the north, the « Maison de la Culture » in the center, and the auditorium to the south.
This east gallery is a true meeting place, it provides easy access to the building’s functions. It contributes to the building’s openness to the public space, offering sights on the near and distant environment.
The venue is dedicated to multidisciplinary cultural practices, with a focus on contemporary music and live performance. It is adaptable and offers several types of configuration, with a seating capacity of 150 on a telescopic stand, or a standing capacity of 400.
The total surface area is organized on the principle of integrated stage space.
Polarization of the hall is possible, thanks to the use of mobile stage drapes to maintain a classic approach to the existing practices within the facility.
The total surface area of the hall can be freed up to offer an adaptable capacity with a standing audience. The hall is equipped with high-performance stage lifting equipment.
