Located in a fashionable district of Geneva, close to the lake shore, 42 rue du Rhône is a major refurbishment project, creating two levels of retail, five office floors and a rooftop restaurant. The building is eight storeys above ground with four existing basement levels. Its undulating facade takes its reference from the mountains which form the city’s backdrop and draws attention in the oblique views along the narrow street.
