A key aim for the design is to enhance the site and the nearby areas with a new park that connects the existing nursing home "Fondazione Patrizia" and the new structure.
The new nursing home is a clear and functional 3-storey building; its height is proportionate to that of the nearby constructions.
The simplicity of the external volume is combined with an internal spatial richness.
The three storeys are organized around a courtyard that shifts to each level. This movement creates a sequence of ascendant spaces connected visually.
The common spaces, dining rooms and living rooms are situated around these spaces situated in opposition to the more private single rooms.
