This project involves the construction of an entire neighborhood on the site of a former Farm School in Waterloo, and entails the renovation of classified historic buildings on a 15-hectare area of land.The concept is innovative and yet inspired by the history of the site: Our aim was to build an intergenerational village with global services, allowing seniors to be surrounded by evolving and adaptable living areas that responds to their needs. The project also includes services such as: convenience stores, a swimming pool, a nursery, a care center operated by Les Cliniques de l’Europe, a nursing home and assisted living residence. All this, while maintaining the essence of the existing buildings.
FCM Architects has contributed to the creation of 182 flats (from 47 to 163 m²) and 87 houses (from 125 to 250 m²) in addition to the various facilities of the site, combining practicality and durability, two main values of our company.
This project was launched in 2006 and will be fully completed by the end of 2015. Here, we have developed strong, long-term partnership which involves a team of experts who ensures sharp creative and technical management of the project.
