Event venue in Riec sur Belon / GuinÃ©e et Potin Architects
Text description provided by the architects. The old presbytery in Riec-sur-Belon is intended to accommodate the cultural and associative pole. The plot dedicated to the operation presents a unique situation: an existing heritage building (a former presbytery) surrounded by a stone wall and an old orchard. The cultural hall and the associative premises are part of a global approach aimed at strengthening the links between the village, around the market, the church and the town hall.
The choice of this site makes us aware of the importance of a new building which would enhance the image of the city center. This equipment must bring together multiple places with an associative and cultural vocation, offering easy and warm access to all.
The complexity of the program goes beyond a simple ballroom: a telescopic tiered room for 200 people seated or 320 standing, association rooms on two levels with independent access, a “large lounge”, a bar, and a office on the ground floor of the old presbytery, storage rooms and boxes.
The materials and shapes used are at the service of a form of contemporary discretion: the festive room is “all dressed in wood” (frame, frame, cladding, and interior cladding), sheathed in raw plywood, designed as a beautiful hangar. sequenced by a vertical rhythm; He does not appear fully until entering the plot.
