Givaudan’s entrance pavilion
Chemin de la Greube - Vernier, Switzerland
This modest project is the answer to the Givaudancompany’sdesire to modernize their welcoming and administrative spaces. The old pavilion which includes a boiler room has been transformed to create a new welcoming space for visitors and VIPs.
This small building realized in the 1960s by Bugna architects, is made of concrete and has a remarkable plastic expression due to the simplicity of the concrete structure and the sculptural design of the chimney and the boiler room.
This project presented the opportunity to restore the original architectural quality of the building by highlighting the concrete structure whichhad been hidden by the addition of several facade elements over time. A fully glazed new reception area, slips under the concrete roof of the building and offers visitors a reception area and a transition space that connects the remarkable surroundings of the pavilion with the “the brand image” of Givaudan.
