A mixed-use cooperative project on a complex site.
The project completes a city block in central Geneva. The site’s several challenges include the city’s loudest street, a polluted soil and limited available space. The creation of pleasant meeting points and of a maximal amount of affordable housing were the project’s main goals.
Offices, commercial spaces, condominiums and cooperative apartments share the parcel and co-finance the project. The program is allocated according to a careful study of the site’s characteristics. The apartments are distributed through generous outdoor galleries which also serve as balconies and noise protections. The open garden is the meeting point between residents and public.
This project was designed with our sister office De Giovannini SA.
