00526 / kateřinice – seniors
location: Kateřinice, Zlín Region, Czech Republic

Kateřinice is a vilage situated in the Hostýn Hills, close to the town of Vsetín, in the valley of the Kateřinka creek. The former collective farm area in the centre of the village is proposed to be converted into the senior community house.
The one-storey building is based on the simple rectangular shape divided into more wings, connected by an outdoor arcade around the inner living garden. This space is thus a transcription of a garth or an old roman garden, as a place for living, encounters and rest.
