The contemporary extension brings light to the ancient building and its rich ornamental features.

“This public establishment is housed in a very ancient and fully renovated building, successfully combined to one which is strikingly contemporary – Very well done.”

France Info/JTL, Guide la dépendance par David Jaquet et Patrice Long 

The modernization of the Constance-Mazier center implied a renovation as well as an extension. The architectural treatment of space plays on a peaceful theatricality bringing together every aspect of the building whilst creating spectacular viewpoints throughout the residence. The project is clear as soon as one enters through the ground floor. The interior street gathers all collective functions, and participates to ameliorating the residents’ sense of orientation thanks to the overall visibility it provides. The building’s compactness preserves most exterior spaces and an exceptional park in the city center.

Public and private sector combined, in its region [Seine-Saint-Denis], this medicalized retirement home ranks first for the authors of the famous guide “La dépendance”  published by France Info and JTL (1).

Thanks to the architectural quality of the renovation and extension and despite its location with no overt charm, they attributed it a grade of 9/10, concluding on these few words: “Exceptional resort“.
