This is a project by Wurm + Wurm and it is located at Oberkirch, Germany. Project's program: Media centre with festival room and archives. There are twenty one images for Media Centre Oberkirch.
The new development of the media centre was awarded to 'Wurm + Wurm', based on their design for the competition held in 2007. Construction began in November 2008 and the project was completed in February 2010.
The following units with a total area of 2100 m2 are accommodated in the Media Centre building: 1000 m2 Media Centre (former town library), 185 m2 Function room, 350 m2 Civic archive.
The Media Centre spans over 3 floors with an open, organic configured staircase. The central positioned exploitation is not only used as a movement and communication area, but it is also broadly glazed with the borrowed light, so it is an illumination element for the central-lying effective district. The facades with the wide out cut apertures are apprehended like esoteric show windows, which are promising to get multifarious and interesting views to the surrounding civic area. The light-coloured and outer window regions provide a reading and inhabitation region, where there are partly brass-bound integrated places to read and to sit in Maeander form.
At the ground floor there are not only the audiovisual medias, magazines and newspapers, but also the book room region with the central receiver bar.
At the 1st floor is the area for children and adolescence arranged, which is next to the books and CDs and it contents comprehensive choices of video games, “normal games” and also a playstation©. The 2nd floor was made for adults and the belletristic.
But also here, as in the total house, are modern “Touchscreen Computers” positioned for almost all types of uses. At this place, the completely inventory of audio CDs and audio books can be accessed, the Internet can be used, and the complex graphics and videos can be edited.
