This is a medical care home project. This kind of building intends to receive people with severe disabilities. It is a two-story building organized around patios. This typology allows us to organize the project as a large house where the collective spaces are located in the building center and distribute the privet spaces opened to the park. The program is divided into two levels and one partial basement level. The entrance, the administration office, the services and the living units are located on the ground floor. The medical center, and the activity rooms are located upstairs adjacent to a large terrace. In the basement are located the technical area and forty parking spots.
The living units are organized around patios. This outside space is accessible from each room. It preserves the units privacy and offer a view on the park. These patios are an intermediary space between a private space, the room, and a large outside space, the park.
This young worker housing is a four-story building with a car park basement. It is a simple, calm and compact building organized around an atrium. The building occupation on the plot was limited to the strict minimum to keep a large distance from the building neighbors.
A large central atrium gathers the vertical circulations with an open staircase and an elevator. The corridors opened to the atrium leads to the studio apartments. This arrangement allows us to illuminate the circulation spaces with natural light and to avoid long dark corridors. Indeed, the atrium is being daylit by north oriented windows on every level and a large south oriented window on the top floor. The collective and technical spaces are located on the ground floor as well as some of the studio apartments. The other studio apartments are located on the upper floors. The multi-purpose hall is on the ground floor south Ouest building corner.
The studio apartments are organized on a regular grid, but thanks to the windows irregular disposition, several apartment arrangements are possible. None apartments are north oriented and almost half of the bathroom apartments has natural light. The facades are made of mold light concrete with a pattern like travertine stone. The ground floor carpentry works are made of metal. The upper floors carpentry works are made of PVC with rolling shutters.
