The existing medical centre is located on an exceptional site and its 19th Century building is a remarkable piece of heritage, in the centre of a park with an abundant range of different plant species. The new project, which involves the creation of specialised accommodation for autistic adults and children, a psychomotor balneotherapy section and therapeutic gardens, emphasises these advantages and strengthens the quality of the already-built areas and park. A central landscaped pedestrian area forms the new heart of the site, and all the buildings lie within the sympathetically redeveloped park. The new accommodation buildings form a succession of simple, white volumes set on the green carpet of the park, complemented by green roofs, coloured facades and large picture windows.
