The Gilbert Raby Center
Meulan en Yvelines

This project consists of a new, two story building which hosts therapeutic workshops, a day hospital, a laundry and pharmacy. The building is inserted into the slope of the land, giving full access to each of the two levels who function independently of one another. A wide bioclimatic space serves both levels from the inside, while providing a climatic transition space between the exterior and interior. An all-wood structure, raw earth bricks and bio-sourced wood fiber insulation work to reduce the carbon footprint of the construction.
