Barthelemy Durand Psychiatric Hospital, Sainte-Geneviève des-Bois



Designed within an unspoilt landscape, the five new units of the psychiatric hospital are arranged around a central forecourt, an important area for circulation and interaction, forming a connection with the town, like a village square.

A place for outdoor life, transition and passage, it provides an approach that is diametrically opposed to confinement or segregation.
