Geneva. High density.
The site Pointe de la Jonction is an emblematic place in the city center of Geneva.
The project attempts to develop a urban strategy introducing a housing area in relation with the main site's characteristics, but but also a coherence on the larger city's scale.
The reflexion process is inspired by a sunstainable logic : a mixed-uses program tends to promote sustainable mobility while protecting the existing heritage and enhancing landscape views.
The project is built up through differents scales : from a urban masterplan to a housing-blocks proposal, the project lays down the question of typology, based on a rated density, and a balance between housing, services and public spaces.
