Experimental beguine

Housing for seniors, shouldn’t be they a way to give life to a place, rather than take it away, between gas station and convenience store, as if it were a simple service ? Old Church , down the sea near Dunkerque, made this bet : the retirement home is the centrepiece of the village centre, close to the school. Between fragmented housing as rural houses, gardened alleys are maintained by the children… for jams. Simple and beautiful exchange.
