Renovation of the property and the building shell, expansion and redevelopment of the ground floor, and extension of the property by construction of eight apartments.
Located close to Lausanne railway station, this building ensemble has only been used as offices to date. In addition to renovation of the building and building shell, and the expansion and redesign of the ground floor (whilst retaining its existing architectural identity), eight apartments were also added to the top of the building. These are located on the top floor and a second attic floor above this, and offer breathtaking views of the city, Lake Geneva and the Alps. Furthermore, the forecourt at the entrance to the building and a new inner courtyard were also designed and built.
