Competition for the construction and development of medical-social structures, Vissoie
In collaboration with Muriel Marty
The new volumes are oriented in size, shape and character to the existing buildings in the area.
The volume staggering follows the slope in its topography and combines the different uses into one unit.
The room program is distributed over several levels and grouped by functions.
The vertical circulation of the buildings allows a versatile distribution of space, which guarantees the spatial quality. The construction is based on the bypassing of the height difference. The exterior spaces follow the construction stages. In the first stage, they lead you into the medical structure of the facility, in the second stage into the connected retirement home.
To optimally integrate the new building into the existing village structure, the choice of materials is based on the materiality and colors of local buildings. The element wood is reinterpreted and gives the buildings airiness.
