- 129-beds nursing home
Pilote project for mad people
Registration for BATEX 2013
- The project is located in the center of Brussels. Its an experimental project for the accompaniment of the people suffering from the Alzheimer's disease or the other forms of senility.[...]
The building is composed of units about 20 beds by level, naturally bounded without border or internal closure.
The spatial plan moves away from the hospitable plan by the presence of a central pole including the nursing, voluntarily reduced; the living spaces and two wings of rooms on both sides of the building.
The control of the residents, their activities and the circulation are centralized around this core. Accessible and secure terraces as well as winter garden situated at every level allow the residents to keep in touch with the city, noise and seasons.
In the 7th floor are implanted the spaces of collective activities as well as a coffee for the welcome and the exchange of families with a terrace and impregnable panoramic views of the city.
This heavy renovation requires the exposure of trays to answer the imperatives of surfaces required for rooms and with the new requirements regarding energy performances.
