Text description provided by the architects. The building accommodates epileptics with poor mobility. It is located within a pinewood at the edge of a reserve forest. The room with windows all around offers a permanent relation with the surrounding nature and gives them the impression of being outdoors.
The « vessel » made of glass with a structure of wood and iron is based on pillars and floats therefore above the nature. A wooden footbridge meanders under the pine trees and assures the link to the existing building.
