The building takes advantage of the North / South soil inclination and thus has a privileged sun exposure. In this sense, the construction is dematerialized in two arms that are articulated in the area of access and permits the best exposure according the distribution of the program.

The Boswijk is a care centre for elders with dementia, designed in close collaboration with the client and with a strong vision as starting point. The centre was to be of a scale that related to its users, and not to be like a traditional nursing home. In spite of their dementia, the patients should be able to live their lives as it always was.

In an aging society and due to the tendency in the industrialized west of extended lifetimes, the typology of nursing and retiree homes and its architectural manifestations increasingly gain importance. This happens especially in regards to these buildings’ relevance as people’s last home in life. In Austria, the public sector, in this case the state of Lower-Austria as the client for this nursing home project, accepts this challenge.

Our proposal was directly influenced by the characteristics of the immediate surroundings of the plot. Through detailed site analysis, we concluded that the most important aspects of context are the landscape and the extreme impact of the rural environment. Therefore, the proposed residence for the elderly, apart from fulfilling all functional prerequisites, must be consistent with those surrounding features.
