From the architect. The structure of the senior citizens residence and the social center is in line with the east-west axis that divides the site into two outdoor facilities with different spatial qualities. The public area that rises between the buildings forms an urban crossing for the senior citizens with the town citizens. The private garden (the “hortus conclusos”) provides the senior citizens with a variety of outdoor activities and, if necessary, constant supervision by the nursing staff.

Relaxing under the fruit trees, taking walks, or caring for the flower beds are just some of the possibilities. The pivotal point of the interior is its multifunctional foyer (reception, dining room, event area, etc.) which is seamlessly annexed to the public space. Earthy and warm tones characterize the atmosphere and are also used as orientation aids within the building. Skylights and large windows admit light and air into the building.

very inquisitive to see what the interior looks like

"Relaxing under the fruit trees, taking walks, or caring for the flower beds are just some of the possibilities."

Where is this stuff? More photos please, because as of right now this looks desolate and very senior-unfriendly... like a prison courtyard...

Hey i am wondering if anybody knows what cladding is used on the building (3rd photograph shown)

Thanks

...they don't move! I was at the inauguration of the building.

Dear Archdaily,

I was wondering if you know if the windows slide. It appears they do, but then...I'm not sure if they move. Very interested in finding this out. Thanks!

I don't think they slide, it looks like there is a vent that opens next to them.
