Homey village in France provides healing space for people with Alzheimer's and dementia
The project recently won an international competition for a new building for people with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Located in the town of Dax, France , it deploys a new approach to designing healthcare facilities and draws from the architects’ extensive experience with designing buildings for the healthcare sector. The building respects the patients’ personal needs and privacy, and provides a homely atmosphere that has been proven to help Alzheimer and dementia patients.
