Sergison Bates Architects
location Huise-Zingem
function dwellings, health care
contributed by HJI

The care home is organised into three adjoining volumes of three floors, with two central courtyards open to the sky. The volumes are stepped in plan, achieving a sense of reduced scale for what is in reality the largest building in the village. The 88 rooms and studio bedrooms are arranged in clusters around the perimeter with views out to the landscape. A single large communal living room is positioned on each floor in the central volume, adjacent to staff and support areas, with views out to the central garden and internal views to both central courtyards. The circulation spaces vary in width and doors (necessary for fire separation) are located discretely so that corridor and living room form a single open interior landscape.
