We presented a very clear and functional volume, the layout of which is organized to precisely fit the requirements of the brief. It guarantees a good coexistence between the elderly, visitors and employees while at the same time it creates a homely atmosphere.
All public areas are arranged on the ground floor, in direct connection with the gardens and the forecourt. The private and semi-private rooms are located on the upper floors. In these levels several intimate areas are designed. The feeling of community is strengthened through multiple cross views and paths.
