The architects designed a new metal roof for the Helene Lancoux media library, which includes more than 40,000 works dedicated to cultural history. The roof’s diamond-shaped windows allows pockets of light to penetrate the interior and illuminate the exhibition spaces. Several of the museum’s main exhibition spaces are located below ground level. Thanks to their simplicity and the absence of columns, these spaces provide tranquil environments for observing artwork. A 250-seat auditorium and two smaller 50-seat rooms are located on the first underground floor.

The exhibition areas are accompanied by workshop spaces, reading and music listening rooms, as well as quiet spaces for students and researchers. While Graber Pulver Architekten designed the structures, the landscape above the underground facilities was designed by Guido Hager and Pascal Posset from Hager.
