The project articulates a residential area with a day centre for the elderly. The building is arranged at different heights around a landscaped patio, allowing for the entry of sun and natural light. It adapts the spaces to the different requirements of the residence and the centre a change of use and new treatments.
Domesticity is prioritised in seeking maximum comfort in the spaces for long-stay residents. Safety has also been fundamental in organising the internal and external public spaces, so as to allow easy monitoring of residents and users of the centre.
