FARO was asked by Warm Thuis and Bouw­com­pag­nie to design assisted liv­ing groups for elderly with Alzheimer. On an exist­ing farm­stead, we designed three new barn-​like struc­tures in which the groups will be housed. The char­ac­ter­is­tic exist­ing farm­house and two exist­ing barns will be inte­grated into the plan.

Inspired by the vision of Warm Thuis to pro­vide small scale care, we designed mod­ern groups for six res­i­dents in the famil­iar style of a farm­house on a farm­yard. The design is based on the black barn with its dis­tinct sil­hou­ette. White details on the facades refer to the arche­typ­i­cal barns of the past. The vol­umes have cut-​outs for shel­tered out­door spaces and entrances. The plan has addi­tional qual­ity due to its sus­tain­able water use.
