Retirement home "Hespériedes" in Grevenmacher
Project Mulhern & Steil.
The owner of this land resisted the temptation to integrate it into a subdivision under construction north and west of its boundaries. He had the idea of taking advantage of this unique situation, bordered on the east by a vineyard above which there were views towards the Moselle and Germany.
We drew a protected building, with a single guarded entrance, but which gave the impression of a charming ensemble in which the boarders-owners could age peacefully with dignity. Less easy to do in retirement homes built too often in the appearance of slaughterhouses or factories.
The project was ready to build when, due to land issues, the landlord was forced to sell the land with the authorized project to a property developer.
Unfortunately, and for lack of inspiration, the developer redesigned all the buildings in apartment houses, before building a set that looks a bit like our project, but only seen from the other side of the Moselle
