e: One roof Exhibition – Lombard Odier architectural competition for its news global headquarters in Bellevue (GE)

Lombard Odier has unveiled an ambitious architectural project t
o build its new global headquarters in
Bellevue (Geneva) by 2021. Designed by the prestigious architec
tural firm Herzog & de Meuron, the project
features ultra-contemporary architecture that combines openness
to its surroundings with elegance and
innovation. This project was selected following a competition b
etween eight local and international
architectural firms. Geneva-based firm Favre & Guth will work
By proposing a single building for Lombard Odier’s new head of
fice, we are applying the title of the
competition – One Roof – literal
ly. “Each façade is treated ide
ntically: there’s no front or back,” said Pierre
de Meuron. “A stone-clad bunker would no longer be in keeping w
ith the image of a contemporary bank. We
have designed a transparent, elegant and measured building; as
such, its architecture reflects the vision and
values of Lombard Odier. The form and appearance of our project
are not due to aesthetic preference. Our
intention is to enable all occupants of the new head office to
fully appreciate the surrounding natural
environment,” added Pierre de Meuron.
“At the heart of our values has always been the concept of sust
ainable development, combining
environmental, social and econom
ic considerations,” Patrick Odi
er concluded. “This building integrates this
concern perfectly. In particular
, it will meet the highest stan
dards of sustainable development and employ
the most efficient technology available, particularly in terms
of energy-saving. The quality of working
conditions will be an integral
part of this ecosystem.”
In keeping with its vision of tradition and innovation – as exe
mplified by its “Rethink Everything”
philosophy, this new, cutting-edge site combines flexibility wi
th technological innovation, as well as
strengthening synergies, collaboration and access by our client
s to the Group’s various business lines.
