Équilibre en milieu hostile

This is a graduation project, presented in september 2016. It is a reflection on isolation, through a rehab center, a mountain hut and a space observatory on a French Alps summit, peaking at 2466m. Isolation is used as healing means for drug addicts, who are in a modular proximity with the second population of the building: hikers. The architecture of the building orgnizes this internal society and defines its meeting points, the observatory being the climax of these exchanges. The concept of duality structures the building into two parts in order to respect the intimity needed in the spaces dedicated to therapy.
The many references (architectural and cinematic) led the project to a global balance between architectural expression and the programmatic needs for the different ways of using the building.
