The proposal combines all the required program in a 55,000 sqf building that reminds of traditional swiss architecture at a majestic site in Geneva Lake. This new mixed-use building hosts the communal building as well as the new restaurant and hotel for Port Gitana area in Geneva.
Over the lightweight ground floor appears a huge zinc roof with rhomboid-shaped motifs. The outdoor garden is developed with terraces adapted to the existing terrain.
Developing a suitable building for this site with nice views to Mont Blanc and Geneva Lake was really challenging.
