Philippon – Kalt first delivered social housing with a thermal solar panel facade in 2010 for French company Siemp. Now they have completed an accommodation facility for elderly citizens with Alzheimer’s. Located at Paris’ rue Blanche, the architects have built a block of structures with Ductal® concrete double skin and a protected garden. The buildings “focus on creating a positive social and medical environment for elderly people with Alzheimer’s. This arrangement is unique in Paris and its development sheds new light on the management of residents with this disease in the context of a major renovation.” The structure is brightly colored, with diagonal and vertical lines cutting through the facade.
