This housing for elderly people is located on the banks of the Rhine. The exceptional situation of the site allowed us to turn the common areas and the hall towards the river: the residents can enjoy the choreography of passing boats. The programme consists of 50 sq.m. units, a restaurant in three sections, a computer room, a hobby workshop, a vegetable garden, and an area for playing pétanque.
Red concrete, terracotta and wood produce a benevolent atmosphere. Outside, the building is enveloped in brick on all sides. The walls catch the light; by emphasising its rustic port setting, the building connects itself to the history of the Rhine.
