In the first three arches of the Grand-Pont, two new concert halls come to life: LE ROMANDIE and LA BRÈCHE. This complex urban situation, nestled beneath a listed structure dating from 1844, lies between two of the city’s most emblematic architectural landmarks.

Enhancing the Existing : Our project aims to enhance this unique context by inserting new programmatic entities. These not only respect the existing, but also intensify the new uses of this urban gap.

Underground Dynamic Architectures : the concert halls are conceived as dynamic sequences. They articulate fragments of pre-existence with lighting and acoustic devices. Underground spaces thus become vibrant and inspiring places for music lovers.

Reuse and local sourcing : The construction process is based on a logic of reuse. We reuse elements already present on site, while drawing on the urban mines of the Lake Geneva region for the additional elements required. This sustainable approach, rooted in the local fabric, contributes to the cultural and architectural richness of our city.

These new concert halls embody the harmony between past and present, architecture and art, and offer a space where contemporary music can resonate, interact and overlap with different atmospheric, urban and historical strata.
