The project bears witness to being a place shared between medical practice and research.
Appearing in the centre of the composition is a long building, “the exchanges and evaluations gateway”, which clearly illustrates this place of sharing.
Another peculiarity is an accommodation block, which fulfils the conventional functions, whilst really taking advantage of the fact that the site looks out on nature, as this is considered an important element in the respect and healing of patients.
The objective being to humanise the hospital field, to get close to a domestic environment… an architecture known as “attentive”.
Architecture has clearly not the capacity to care, but it is the space of mediation which invites all the actors to the service of the patient: researchers, caregivers and carers.
