Médiathèque d’Anzin by Dominique Coulon Architecte

The Strasbourg based practice Dominique Coulon Architecte recently completed this new multimedia library in Anzin, a small city in the very north of France. The building’s facade is characterised by multifaceted openings, flaps and folds and large veils that reflect the light into the inside.

“On the inside, there is abundant, uniform light. The space is open and fluid, offering optimal flexibility. The lighting effect produced by the tall gaps that appear to float in space is truly beautiful. The volumes are independent and geometrically free, giving the whole a wonderfully poetic feel.”
