Located in Laon (02), this extension project of EHPAD signed by the agency Lazo & Mure Associated Architects is distinguished by a particularly elaborate implementation, intended to restore coherence to the existing, optimizing also the living conditions of residents and staff. An entire program...

For the reconstruction of this pavilion on the vast parcel of the House of Retirement Departmental of Aisne, in Laon, the goal was multiple: to provide the site of an Alzheimer service and a new restaurant, to add a medical pole and another administrative, increase its capacity and finally imagine "A device to ensure the identification of the building for visitors and residents"as the architects explain; a last important point, due to the fact that the existing "A rather heterogeneous built environment".

This new part - with very orthogonal lines not exceeding two levels - is built on the north side of the site, facing the access intended for the public. Here, a cap - constituted by a volume in R + 1 cantilever - makes it possible to mark the entry. This leads to the hall, "Inscribed within an inner street connecting the place of vertical circulation and accommodation to that of community living spaces and animation. Like a walk, it leads to the multipurpose room and restaurant », which is located in the south wing, located stack between the two existing parts. A good way to connect the latter to the original project, while sparing the appearance of islands of greenery, always welcome, especially in this type of program. Nature is indeed omnipresent in this EHPAD, evidenced by the presence of a therapeutic garden on one of the roofs ... What allow residents to take full advantage of this relaxing and quiet.
