    THE BERTH: Under the shaded foliage, Arve's alluvium

    THE IDEA

    The idea behind the berth was to construct a comfy space near the Arve. To do so, we used a warm material: bricks, made by Rhône's clay in situ and we shaped concave surfaces. The tree is also a keystone since bricks are accumulated as alluvium around it, creating the welcoming topography for the body. The whole is embraced by the foliage's shadow. Bricks are also a habitat for local plants, and the berth lives with the season. During fall foliage and bricks complement each others, the different levels respond to different levels of Arve's fluctuation

    THE STAIRS

    The parking stairs are the only land access to the house. Our house groups a series of moments, of different rooms and materials, of changing relations with the protostructure and the topography of the site. 

    The entrance stairs are the beginning of an architectural promenade to understand how the house articulates. First they introduce you with the protostructure, and as you go up the stairs will be surrounded by a terracotta fountain, the water will envelop you. There are two main moments when walking in these stairs, at first you will experience the house from outside and as the water envelops you you will experience it from within and start feeling the interiority of the house. The stairs work with the other rooms, the observatory feeds the fountain to then water the gardens. They are the only access to the debate room making it a destination and not a place of passage.

    Intent text: a day in the house, shifted in fragments of life.

    Hannah, 21, blurred times, in transition

    I am unfamiliar with this city, I have only been in Geneva for one month. It was a short, moist summer night when I ran across the house.  I was drifting along planes, I followed the sound of the river and came to rest on the lower part of the house. Three planes as if they were dancing formed a wide and welcoming cocoon. As open as it was, I felt great. Time passed by, it always does, but with the unchanged burble of the river, I felt I could sty there forever. I felt alive.

    Charles, 6, can count up to 60

    I discovered this place last holidays. It looked like a giant park; I quickly lost my parents in the jungle. My pace went faster as I found my way out of the labyrinth. Then I arrived in a in a place with a strange roof surround by empty cubes, as if it where all made out of legos. There were a lot of people and in the center two of them were speaking, it was full of grown-ups, I recognized my parents among the crowd and continued my journey. My parents saw me, and followed me in to the theatre. It was a funny theater, it looked like wooden falls. I easily got distracted from the play as the backround was way more appealing. Birds, hundreds of them flied from tree to tree and the junction’s colours changed as the sun got lower.   That is the last thing I remember from that day. It was a great adventure.

    Juliet, 43, highly determined, no links with her family

    I have lived in Geneva for 14 years now and I believe there is a real lack of common ground in this city, for arts, for thoughts. Thus, when I heard of this house near the junction, I immediately wanted to see it. I visited it with some friends, it was an early Tuesday night. An adaptation of La cantatrice chauve was scheduled. We were late, we quickly got to our seats in the theater. The play was nice, the atmosphere reminds me of the genesis of theatre, landscapes, the scene and bleachers. When the play was over we followed the slope and found room to begin a discussion. It was our shelter, and we talked about the necessity or not of sets in the scenography. I won’t unwrap all the plea, yet I thought it was funny that these cubes on the ground created a scenography during our debate, as a mise en abyme.

    Par Hennel Claire, 14/04/20

    My dear daughter,

    Last week was intense, the actors are nearly ready and they just finished building the stage! It's wonderful, it portrays exactly the emotions I intended it to. It has a beautiful view on the river! Under the stage lies a hidden space in which I can chill and I even had a nap in the sun there yesterday. The entrance really makes me think of you! It's a little labyrinth, just as you love. I wish that you could visit soon to explore the maze with me and find the hidden room. All week, there were people debating in there, it's really funny. We could also sit in front of the water together and even maybe have a nap! This place is amazing, it is perfect for us, there are little steps for you and big steps for me! I think I will buy the land after the show.

    All these things make me think of you every day. Miss you my sweetheart. Xx

    Love, Daddy
