The basis of the architectural option rests on the willing to maintain, at the most, the woody nature of the site. The wood and the trees are the only architecture that matter. Their monumental and coherent character constitutes the project.
From the street, the new building seems to be a low building R+1+roof, located in the wood. The wood has been redefined with a minimum of tree cutting to ensure the view towards the Semois Valley. The new building is designed to help the continuation built between the old building and the new one. The new rest home develops in a star shape allowing to create a village market, a place for animation and encounters for the inhabitants.
Respecting energy concepts that we desire for this project, our architectural desire is to obtain simple materials and shades for the entire facades in order to melt the building into the woody background.
The entire site is harmonious, discreet and coherent with the environment.
