Text description provided by the architects. Located on the heights of Lausanne, the Nestlé research centre was conceived by Burckhardt+Partner in 1987. In order to meet its current requirements, Nestlé has added a new metabolic unit. This new building reflects its image given by a contemporary architecture, refined to stand out the architecture of the existing buildings.

A clean monolith of same dimensions, with similar grids to the existing building, is realized by using a black, screen printed glass front. The basement of the building accommodates large surfaces for archives and technical areas. The ground floor offers office spaces and the new metabolic unit has been installed on the first floor.
