Séquences et Fontaine & Malvy : EHPAD

Created by the Séquences and Fontaine & Malvy agencies, the new EHPAD in Feugarolles (47) is not a simple architectural project. It is a profession of faith dedicated to listening and paying the necessary attention to future users.

In a green and calm environment, the Feugarolles retirement home shows the respect its authors - the Séquences and Fontaine & Malvy agencies - for the site as well as its future users. This EHPAD is therefore designed in such a way as to offer a reduced visual impact on its context, while offering maximum comfort to residents. As such, the volume - L-shaped - is attached to the south-eastern limit of the plot; a precaution allowing to leave free a large part of the ground, offering at the same time multiple points of view on the surrounding nature.

In addition, the architects have privileged different materials, particularly discreet, to signal different universes with elegance: "A concrete base punctuated by bay windows and stamped panels, to accommodate the poles of life, administration and various technical premises; an opaque wooden facade, transformed into a clearing lighthouse at the level of the technical rooms at the upper level for more airy accommodation wings "they explain. Coupled with the low height of the realization of almost 4 000 square meters, not exceeding the two levels, materials and textures contribute to a remarkable insertion in the landscape of the whole.

Inside, the volumes are organized in such a way as to optimize the quality of life of retirees. In this perspective, the corridors of circulation are ventilated by the presence of several patios, when the entrance, in double height, is drawn like a convivial meeting place: "It is a large hall, very bright, which distributes the different premises of common life, such a lively village square and conducive to meetings", detail the architects. What a lot of happy days ...
