However, the building seeks its own rules of composition – derived from the location – to create its own autonomy and identity.Save this picture!© Jean-Michel LandecySurrounded by newly planted trees, the building has a visually pleated effect created by undulating bands of subtly coloured concrete on the walls. The balcony parapets and inset glass facade together create an ‘organic’ rhythm that emulates the foliage of the trees. Save this picture!© Jean-Michel LandecyMovement around the building is by means of naturally lit stairwells, situated on the front facade: a location that lends dignity to this communal and social space. The project uses rational typologies that accommodate the building’s perfect north-south orientation and built-up surroundings. These typologies are inspired by local layout styles, which historically consist of a central communal core around which are placed two traversing apartments and one apartment that is mono-oriented to the south. Save this picture!© Jean-Michel LandecyThe interior of each apartment consists of an entrance hall leading into a living area extending through the full depth of the building, from garden to street. Depending on the size of the apartment, the bedrooms are either north- or south-facing. The living rooms of all apartments open onto the broad balcony-terrace.   Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessBook Presentation & Architects ConferenceEventMoMA: Applied DesignEventProject locationAddress:Geneva, SwitzerlandLocation to be used only as a reference.
