This project is located in Saint Maur, on the outskirts of the city of Chateauroux, Indre, France. It involves the conversion and extension of an existing building at the end of a plot into a multidisciplinary healthcare centre.
The appearance of the existing building has been modified, but we chose to preserve its original framework, which is why the first floor differentiates itself from the ground floor. A wooden box replaces the outer layer and the balconies are covered with a polycarbonate façade. This use of exterior insulation and glass enabled us to achieve higher energy efficiency and cooling within the building.
The ground floor has preserved its existing structure and the garage doors are replaced by windows, protected by blinds which filter natural light. At the back, a wooden framework extension has been built alongside the property to provide medical and dental practices. Each room receives natural light.
