- The "south pole" of the Geneva’s agglomeration opens onto the great landscape: the Praille basin and the Lake Geneva basin on one side, Grand Salève on the other, and finally the Jura and Vuache range.
- Facing Lancy, the challenge of the project is to propose an elegant termination of the existing modernist urban fabric.
- Facing the road of Saint-Julien, the project proposes a first plant plan conjugated to a sudden urbanity effect to mark the entrance of the city.
- Facing the plateau of the Praille stands a strong and radiant form.
- Two independent and complementary interventions are installed on both sides of the Saint-Julien road.
- In the north, a set of pentagonal vertical "pieces" is free from the geometry of the Saint Julien road to complete a neighborhood of large-scale residential buildings and measure up to the great landscape.
- In the center, a low and long construction protects the northern sector from the nuisances of the road.
- In the south, an orthogonal complex ends the alignment built on the road by offering a front to the multimodal place of Bachet-de-Pesay. Its articulated form is capable of reacting precisely to a context not yet fully defined.
- The road to St-Julien is considered as a wide urban boulevard bordered on both sides by alignments of large trees.
- A low building block along the road, protected from noise according to OPB and accidents according to OPAM.
- Three towers of varying heights arranged in recess accommodate most of the dwellings.
- Their fan-shaped distribution provides a generous public space and optimal habitability of the dwellings.
- Each tower is characterized by a type of interior distribution and a specific facade shade.
- The service station is remodeled to protect the new neighborhood from nuisance.
- The project establishes fluid and natural relations with the Palettes neighborhood which is developing on its northwest flank as well as with the subway passage associated with the Carouge-Bachet station.
- On the south-eastern flank, a strong visual relationship is established with the CEVA station and its multimodal pole, supported by new direct functional links: sub-track and surface tracking.
