The client wishes to develop a care and therapy campus consisting of 15 hotel rooms, a polyvalent hall, some stables, as well as 2 concierge homes. The program of demands must be realized within an existing cluster of agricultural buildings, grouped around an inner courtyard (STEP 1). Given the fragile state of some of these buildings, we are forced to a partial demolition. Both remarkable buildings at the entrance of the site - the original dwelling and the small stables - as well as the contextual framework, are reinforced (STEP 2). The boundary of the original inner courtyard serves as a front line for both new buildings to be developed, being the polyvalent hall, as well as the concierge homes (STEP 3). The horse stables and the hotel rooms serve as a lower extension to the main buildings, thereby realizing a spatial optimization within the plot (STEP 4).
The roof shape of the attached volumes is extended in front of the main volumes in the form of a porch structure. A disruptive dichotomy between both volumes is thereby avoided and a framed courtyard with surrounding colonnade is realized (STEP 5).
