Spring 2014 – Surélévation à Genève

Un centre sportif sur la toiture d’une halle industrielle.
In the dense city of Geneva, the question of the raising former buildings has been a recurrent theme for several centuries. The studio chose to build an attic on a warehouse of the tpg – the Geneva public transport, located in downtown Geneva .
The program, a sports center , was chosen according to the existing building structure. Indeed, the weight and the large spans required for gyms are not in contradiction with the existing structure dimensioned to the size of a bus.
