Text description provided by the architects. Inspired by the nearby covered market, the project designed by the Patrick Mauger agency in Auneau takes the form of a contemporary hall. The building is set back from the street, creating an esplanade that extends the main market square. A friendly, diversified space combining cultural activities and community life has been created.

Site Plan
Site Plan

Like a figurehead, a multimedia library stretches out on the 1st floor. The glazed façade opens the building onto the square, with the reading room offering views over the town. The ground floor contains a reception area and a place for people to meet one another, as well as a space for young people and another for seniors. The first floor houses offices and small meeting rooms. The dance and gymnastics practice rooms on the upper floor benefit from the attractive volumes under the roof.

The cultural centre has been designed with environmental considerations in mind: its high performance concrete skin protects the building’s external insulation, heating is provided by a heat pump and solar panels have been installed.
