Olivier di Giambattista

Lacroix Chessex designs a short-stay home for senior residents in Echichens, Switzerland.

The medico-social support structure (SAMS) welcomes senior residents, for a short stay, before their return home. The second complex of the SILO Foundation in Echichens on the heights of Morges, the new building offers additional services such as a doctor's office for general practitioners, a hairdresser and a tea room.

The architectural project seeks to fit into the site and respond to the built environment consisting mainly of two poles: the village and the first building of the SILO Foundation.

The building tries to play a pivotal role between these two geometries and to connect existing constructions.

This project has been longlisted in the hospitality building category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
