MEDIATEQUE ANDRÉ MALRAUX

The project

  • Location Béziers - France
  • Date 2008
  • Studio Arch. Jean-Michel Wilmotte

The central media library at Béziers, named after the French writer and Culture Minister André Malraux, is the work of Jean-Michel Wilmotte’s Paris studio. This large cultural container is part of the Paul Valéry University of Montpellier. The media library was opened in September 2008 and is built on a site formerly occupied by an old army barracks. It is housed in an imposing building formed by three glass and pale stone monoliths; the central section is on 4 floors, with 3-storey wings gathered around a central garden.

Product used

119x59.4 cm slabs of VIA MONTENAPOLEONE porcelain stoneware were chosen to floor the large reception area, in perfect assonance with the materials used outdoors. An environment that feels natural, comfortable and bright has been created by combining this stone, inspired by limestone from Antalya, the most prestigious marble of Asia Minor, with wood furniture and distinctive brushwork. The warm hues and delicate veined patterns enhance the brightness of the large central area.

Slowing down today, to come back stronger tomorrow.

Today more than ever, doing business demands a strong sense of responsibility as well as the ability to be flexible, in particular at a time as dramatically complex as the one we’ve been living through over the past few weeks due to the Covid-19 situation.

Right from the start we instituted a series of strict rules for the purpose of safeguarding the health and safety of our employees in the workplace, in full respect of the regulations passed by the Italian government.

Now we have decided to temporarily halt manufacturing in our Italian sites, which will remain closed for three weeks as of this Friday 20th March because of an external economic situation that is momentarily impacting negatively the market.

Nevertheless, the company is not closing.

We are here for you, and for those who wish to continue choosing our products and to whom we will guarantee the best commercial assistance and an efficient delivery service.

We are still here, with our continuous innovation and our ongoing research into new products and solutions that we will soon be proud to launch.

We will come back even stronger than before, ready for the new challenges that await us!
