The organization of the building, on the ground floor, is built around a central pole comprising entrance, restaurant and activities spaces. Logistics and administrative functions are organized in the two lateral wings. Standard floors are organized on both sides of the nursing centre and main living room. Central cores services with soft and rounded forms, creates areas of ambulation, and break the monotony of corridors by providing small lounges, bringing light and views throughout the journey.
3rd floor, slightly setting back compared to the front, hosts two 15 beds psycho-geriatric units organized on the same way as the standard floors.
