Maison d’Habitation à Vernier

  • Aïre, Geneva
  • Maison d'Habitation à Venier is a residential building for up to 30 people. The residents enter the building through a corridor, which serves as a buffer between the street and the living spaces and which is also a common sitting and interaction space.
  • From this corridor, either the sleeping areas or the living spaces can be accessed on different floors. Each of the 12 sleeping areas are units consisting of 2 rooms, a bathroom, a storage room and a wardrobe wall. The units can be furnished, coupled and adapted to various usages.
  • All 6 living areas can be combined to create a larger continuous living and dining room. The timber skeleton has a more closed facade towards the street and an open facade on the front to give the feeling of being immersed in nature while placed in an urban environment.
