Communal areas in focus at French nursing home

Dominique Coulon & Associés completed a 92-bed nursing home in the picturesque little town of Pont-sur-Yonne, France. The minimal structure fits in surprisingly evidently into the hilly landscape around: the low, elongated, dark volume sits modestly amongst the gently sloping floral-embellished meadows. 
Deriving from the complex’s function, the building was designed to be as convenient and accessible as possible, expanded with a very strong communal focus.

The layout offers opportunities for interaction inside and out, while the 96 20 sqm rooms provide space for privacy and withdrawal. For the common areas, one key organising force was the calming landscape around, leading to a layout that makes the best out of the surrounding nature. The main entrance is arranged around a courtyard that, while evoking a village square, also offers a view of the Yonne river.

Panorama takes the main role for the community  areas of the interior as well. All facing south, they are lit by natural light through wide openings. The same is true for all traffic areas, that widen at corners to provide ergonomically shaped banquettes suitable for group activities, meet-ups, or just a chat. Thier light pink and red colouring brings in a touch of fun to the otherwise plain white interior, that is also broken by two sheltered terraces, and a balcony featuring the dining room.
