01Description

A 214-room retirement home including 34 adapted for Alzheimer's patients. Its usable interior surface is 14,200 m2 on a single level, to maximize independence for the residence. It is surrounded by grounds of 3 hectares (7.5 acres). There is a south-facing concourse, presented as a covered pedestrian street: lined with shops; a cafeteria, hairdresser, post office, function and activity rooms. The residences themselves are arranged radially within the grounds, oriented east/west. Access between residential and communal areas is provided by a wide corridor that crosses the site. Small garden areas between habitation blocks ensure that the facility is not repetitive or anonymous, by lending a distinctive touch to each area. Routes through the facility are kept short and naturally light.
