Rue du Rhône 116 facades
The restoration project for the “Rive Centre” facade is part of an unusual city center framework in a district that is protected by a site masterplan. The project proposes double-skin facades, maintaining the aspect of the original facades in the second layer.
This double skin dramatically improves the thermal and sound insulation of the office spaces. It incorporates new technical elements in coordination with the new mechanical installations, and the production of heat and cold.These are part of the elements that make up the facade, giving it character as an effective showcase of technology. Havingdiffering planes, the "folded" facade decomposes and dematerializes the reflection of the city, while preserving the appearance of the original façade imagined by Fritz Jenny.
