Located at the approach to the town of Mattaincourt, the new medico-social establishment (Maison d'Accueil Spécialisé - MAS) blends into the landscape, merging with the topography of the surrounding area. It preserves the landscape. Its roof, onto which the local meadowland extends, contributes to the building?s integration. From the road, the disposition of the building hints at the hollows of the large inner garden and the collective terrace that opens onto the landscape.
The rooms are organized in the periphery of the building and around the inner gardens. Each room has double exposure openings, in on side the patios, in the other side the landscape; the natural light and natural ventilation during the summer are assured. The rooms are only connected to the corridors by their door. All its other openings connect with nature. Each room detaches itself from the institution to form a personal space - the home of its inhabitant.
