A residential building widely opened to the city. This building is designed to be perfectly integrated in its surroundings.

Each floor was conceived as a fragment of a city in which:

-The rooms, grouped in clusters of 2,3 or 5 units, would be like the city blocks

-The circulations would represent the streets

-The communal spaces overlook the urban landscape, the canal or the gardens and trees around.

Space Layout

Living in the building is like living in a liner as all the activities are spread over the 5 floors:

-Ground floor : main hall, living-space, animation space, restaurant, administration and doctors

-1st floor to 4th floor :, residents rooms, solariums-green houses, winter gardens and living spaces

-3rd floor, space for care and physiotherapy opened on the winter garden

-5th floor, hairdresser, balneotherapy, Snoezelen space, unit for special care and activities and a terrasse overlooking the city.
