Building onto an extant structure also presents an opportunity for a more widespread renovation project, a reclaiming of space. The Fondation Jerôme Seydoux-Pathé is an organization dedicated to the preservation of Pathé’s heritage, and to the promotion of the cinematographic art. A Vinyls Library Opens in Seoul.

The architectural concept of this shop in church is based on two, sometimes conflicting, elements.

With keeping the central axis free you still can feel the size of the church. On the other hand the main goal of the shop off course is selling products. Our client in this project, mister Waanders, told us in our first conversation about a Dutch architect called Dom Hans van der Laan. Nembro Library / Archea.

The intention was to make the building available to the citizens, by renovating and expanding the original building, which was to become the new municipal library and thus a centre of culture. The C-shaped plan of the original building and the fact that more space was needed suggested the addition of a new block on the open side, to create an internal open court and turn the building into a more stately “palazzo” formed around a court.

On the one hand it forms a modern programmatic complement to the village by adding a small library and reading space within a setting of quiet contemplation. On the other hand we wanted to use architecture to enhance the appreciation of the natural landscaping qualities. So instead of adding a new building inside the village center, we chose this particular site in the nearby mountains, a pleasant five minute walk from the village center. In doing so we could provide a setting of clear thoughts when one consciously takes the effort to head for the reading room. * Location to be used only as a reference.
