Complete restructure of a 1960’s former retirement home into a 168 bed medical treatment centre. Conceived amidst stringent urban constraints, the heart of our concept lies in the suspension of new window modules to the façade, developed in collaboration with a façade manufacturer. These modules simultaneously increase the room area, to bring it to the minimum legal size without affecting the structure, and substantially improves building insulation. This concept also leads to an extended construction time as these modules are pre-manufactured. Finally, the layout has been completely rethought to allow the permanent stay of patients with Alzheimer’s disease, who have very specific needs and safety considerations.

Our project turned the old building into a modern facility, fully accessible for persons with disabilities and limited mobility and reduced energy consumption by 75%.
