The office FAZ architectes was founded in Geneva in 2016 by Véronique Favre and Tanya Zein. Its diverse projects always relate to the context and sustainability. In that sense, the atmospheric poetry of the details plays a key role. Materials, textures – everything can and should show traces of time and develop a patina: for instance the façades of the primary school extension in Riaz, or the redesign of the alpine garden in Meyrin. In doing so, the architects pick up on the extensive underlying vocabulary offered by the physical and emotional qualities of the genius loci, making the location come alive with old-new materials, colors, textures and scents.
