The premises of the Mediatheque of the New Cantonal College in Aarau needed to be upgraded and adapted to the new functions envisaged. Zimmermann Architekten, an architects’ office in Aarau, proposed to create a contemporary spatial atmosphere through the use of a few carefully chosen elements, while at the same time adapting the space to the new functionality. Crucial factors in the selection of the carpet were the acoustics, the colour quality, the haptic properties and the durability. In the view of the architects, the Flatwool 484 carpet that was laid was the one best able to meet these requirements. Its bright fresh colours gives the Mediatheque a certain lightness while emphasising the spatial unity of the room.
