The project offers optimised spaces for the design and production of watches, alongside spaces for employees to exchange ideas, take part in meetings and to enjoy socialising.
The design is developed around the wellbeing of the craftsmen and the experience of users during their visit, while anticipating the future challenges of the industry and work habits.
Built horizontally on the hill, the structure fits discreetly into the landscape resulting from the folds of the Jura. The contours and materials are chosen to intensify the user’s or visitor’s experience of the environment, natural light, and the movement of the sun.
Thank you to the @dezeenawards_ judges for their confidence. We look forward to the next steps!
