Created in 1960, La Verrière not only marked the MGEN‘s real estate history, but also transformed the approach to mental health. In this therapeutical “village”, relationships with others, #nature and #culture are essential. Since it outset the programme has had a #care centre, theatre, music rooms and a shared restaurant for both staff and residents, all surrounded by nature.
More than just a question of architecture, the debate around rebuilding this estate was above all the occasion to implement AIA Life Designers‘ conclusions on #resilience and link these with the design of spaces which favour the #well-being of those who are vulnerable, their carers and companions.
Thank you to Jérémie Sécher and all the teams at MGEN.
