Text description provided by the architects. Located in the heights of Rolle, this plot is oriented toward two sides: on one side are the vineyards and on the other is Lake Geneva. The building makes use of this situation and morphologically completes the A-One Business Center's series of five volumes. Its S-shape creates two courtyards, each with a distinct character: on the vineyard side, the reception courtyard establishes a link between the offices and the workshops, while the courtyard on the lake side serves as a depot for the fieldwork and is used by the company vehicles.

On the one hand, Romande Energie is active in fieldwork, constructing and maintaining infrastructures, and on the other hand it conducts technical investigations. The form and organization of the building reflects this dual program, without sacrificing architectural uniformity in order to do so. The first wing, with three floors, is dedicated to administrative work, the second is for the workshops and the two final wings serve as storage space. All rooms are flooded with daylight which shines through the facade.

Special attention is paid to the flexibility of the building: the choice of a pillar-and-slab structure for the offices allows office topologies with a high degree of modularity. The shallow depth of the U-shaped halls offers numerous options for spatial combinations and a wide range of possible uses.
