SAMS Silo

LACROIX CHESSEX as Architects

The medico-social support structure (SAMS) welcomes senior residents, for a short stay, before their return home. The second complex of the SILO Foundation in Echichens on the heights of Morges VD, the new building offers additional services such as a doctor's office for general practitioners, a hairdresser and a tea room.

The architectural project seeks to fit into the site and respond to the built environment consisting mainly of two poles: the village and the first building of the SILO Foundation. The building tries to play a pivotal role between these two geometries and to connect existing constructions.

The proposed structure is articulated in two main buildings each arranged around a patio. The scale of the project is thus more suited to the rural context. The facades are made up of prefabricated reinforced concrete elements.
