• A JUNCTURE - House Review

    Par Gugger Robin, 01/06/20

    With Nathan Pasche and Jean Richter from studio Wegman, Robin Gugger from studio Trieber, Marvin Tajana from studio Abenia.


    This year, the two places chosen by ALICE y1 are sites on the banks of the Rhône and the Arve. The one we are working on is called "the Galpon site". 

    It reveals an industrial area hidden by trees and mixes public and private areas, such as the Galpon theater  as well as the warehouse for the waste of Geneva.

    The site is surrounded by woods and has a rich biodiversity, however, the human footprint is very present on the site: the asphalt levelling the land spreads over a large portion of the Galpon site. This artificial soil implies that trees have been removed at this location, thus encouraging access for motor vehicles.

    So these contrasts and the diversity make the site attractive and interesting for the establishment of the House project, A JUNCTURE.

    The particularity of the site is that the house is located on a inclined slope through the woods and links the parking lot to the water.

    The house mixes several themes such as reunification, to gather people in a place that draws a parallel to the junction. 

    It is a place where we can debate about the environment such as the debate room located on the ground floor, at the parking lot level.  We can also observe it through the flows with the observatory, located on the top floor at 7.6 meters from the water. The links to the environment are omnipresent throughout the house, for exemple the gardens with the mush'room and the perma sup. The house give you an easy access to the Arvre river thanks to the dock, cool place to enjoy the surrounding environement.

    It is also a cultural and social place with the theatre, located at 5.1 meter from the water.

    The particularity of the site is that the visitor is guided chronologically through the house, he goes from the stairs on the parking lot to the dock a the bottom, next to the water.

    The protostructure has been structurally strengthened to make possible the construction of the different parts, by adding fondations, densification and bracing elements. 

    A part of the protostructure has been removed though, regarded as unnecessary and space taken.

  • A JUNCTURE - WHAT IS NEXT?

    Par Hayyane Filali Aymane, 30/05/20

    While waiting for an opportunity to build A Juncture physically, it takes form in our imaginary that needs to experiment this place.

  • A JUNCTURE - ARTICULATIONS AND ERGONOMY

    Par Hayyane Filali Aymane, 30/05/20

    Strong team work with Armand Zanota, Delphine Suter, Nina Cruchaud, Luis Melgar, Ines Branet, Leo Perrin, Clément Estreicher, Stephen Bopeso and Claire Hennel.


    In terms of articulations and ergonomy, we worked with two scales, one that we can call macro, and the second, micro.

    The first one is about the overall scale, the movement, the parkour and its width, the "PATH SHAPE"  (121. - A Pattern Language), the celerity of the users and how much they will be.

    Diving inside this debate room you see here how it is centred with the protostructure columns and the trees. The fabric roof that transforms into seats was really a big challenge to deal with, to keep in tension this element that links the wooden structure.

    From a micro point of view: see the comfort of the seats, soft to touch; it’s the first sense that is enhanced. Other sense that is enhanced. The special light treatment with this transparency appeals to the sight. The transparency is also a signal for people outside who can see that something is happening inside.

    The second scale is the human scale, which is more about static and touch.

    This results on a lovely parkour, with a special an "ENTRANCE TRANSITION"  (112. - A Pattern Language), a "PROMENADE" (31. - A Pattern Language) to this debate room.

    Our articulation work starts by considering the trees, then the protostructure: one tree at the centre and the others marking the angles, forming a centred plan.

    The bleachers are centred compared to the protostructure, and the latter’s vertical parts stay to slow down the walking speed of users in this dead end, which is surely the most static space in this house.






    Some additional work:



    Here again, we find this idea of layers, a succession of wooden stairs, bricks, a wood platform, then water. And again, there is an idea of duality

    • from micro view: "STAIR SEATS" (125. - A pattern Language)
    • from macro: monumental stairs, that provide a very special transition to the panoramic view on the junction.

    Then direct after this, a bit more under it, we have the “Dock”, with the transition of materials, from wooden elements to bricks and garden wall, we are in the most outdoor place but the warmest, where it feels like a cocoon.
