The Terre Bonne business park is being developed by Nemaco Suisse SA close to Lake Geneva, between Geneva and Lausanne. The business park contains ten buildings with an area of around 48,000m², including offices, a restaurant and car parks. MVSA has designed the Z1 and Z2 building.
The Z1 entrance building, with offices, a restaurant and a car park, has a transparent glass facade with a dark aluminium balustrade that, with its subtle play of lines, is transformed into large overhanging roof areas on the ends of the building. The ground floor has a greater storey height and a deeper exterior wall line. The entrance is situated in the middle of the building on the axis of the entrances of the other buildings. At ground level, special attention has been paid to the materials used and the inclusion of a variety of functions, such as the ramps leading to the car park, the restaurant patio and the strips of daylight or planting that are ingeniously incorporated in the balustrade of the terrace.
The building complies with strict Swiss (Minergie) sustainability standards: triple glazing is used, solar boilers have been fitted, the roof is used for water storage, the balustrades reduce the percentage of glass and the large overhanging roof areas provide natural shading from the sun.
