The project is situated on the right bank of the River Garonne, which is traditionally cut off from the city centre, but currently part of a large-scale urban planning project.The new wing and the renovated hall, defines the dimensions of the forecourt, ensuring it remains open. This public space renders the city archives and its services more visible, inviting people who are unaccustomed to frequenting this building to come inside. The workspaces are arranged around the garden so everyone can enjoy a relaxing, unobstructed view.The former warehouse is now home to the archives and the reading room, which is consistent with its original use. The reception desk, exhibition galleries, conference and meeting rooms are on the ground floor of the new perpendicular wing. The offices and workshops are on the upper levels, which are only accessible to employees.
