Terraces in Vernier
The public programs that are the object of this competition are a central part of the urban scheme aimed at the success of the future Quartier de L’Etang. Our vision is that of a building opening onto the neighborhood and installing its lively terraces in urban perspectives in the manner of a familiar landscape. The different programs are united within a single building relatively compact to promote exchanges and pooling, the successive plateaus offering terraces accessible to each entity. At ground level, three public spaces in succession cross the site diagonally to organize access to the different programs and connections between them.
