Located on the border of the city of Lausanne, between the residential area of Chailly and the agricultural estate of Rovereaz, the new building stands on a steep plot planted with trees. To the south, the building benefits from an outstanding panoramic view on the Lake Geneva and on the Alps. Leaning along Rovereaz Road, the building displays a singular architectural shape determined by the triangular plot. On the street side, facing north, the building reveals a relatively closed facade, with a verticality enhanced by the undulations of the facade material. A slight fold interrupts the facade’s rhythm and underlines the bending towards Rovereaz Road. The glazed staircase leading to the apartments partitions freely the volume of the building. The south facade offers long glazed and horizontal openings toward the landscape. The loggias alternate with the terraces as exterior extensions of the apartments.
