The project, located in a district listed by the Loi sur les Surélévations (Law on Raised Buildings) as being capable of being raised, aims to create an additional level on an existing attic. Its major challenge was to raise the three stairwells of the building while maintaining the existing part in operation throughout the duration of the works, all in the midst of an urban area.

The Swiss architectural practice Group8 has just finalised this housing estate located in the former industrial neighbourhood in the Chandieu area of Geneva. Comprising 46 apartments and two undergroud garage levels, Bamboo Residence’s distinctive tinted-glass façade was inspired by ‘a theme of vegetation’ and emphasizes building’s ‘exceptional situation next to the Moillebeau-Vermont greenway’. The residence follows the recently-completed Coral House and is Group8’s second development within the area.

This eclectic interior architecture of an office building in Geneva was recently realised by the internationally acting practice group8. Old and disused cargo containers are stacked one upon the other in order to provide some silent work and conference spaces within the otherwise wide and busy open-plan office. The concept was developed in collaboration with the Spanish office furniture manufacturer Dynamobel.
