The eyes of the world are on Geneva. It is where the United Nations have their European head office. The WHO, the WTO, the ICRC and the UNHCR also call Geneva their home. More than 250 NGOs with consultative status with the UN maintain offices here. And 176 countries have permanent representations or missions in town.
At the same time, Geneva is a known watch-making and finance centre. The Global Financial Centres Index lists Geneva as second-most important financial centre of Switzerland and ranks it fifth in Europe. Watches made in the Canton of Geneva are considered the world’s finest. The greater Geneva region has made an international name for itself as science hub, most notably with CERN.
But Geneva also scores high in terms of liveability. Its scenic location on the shore of Lake Geneva, the unique alpine backdrop and the diversified cultural amenities all play a role here. The prestigious commercial building at Boulevard du Théâtre 8-10 lies in the heart of “the smallest of the large metropolises” just a few steps from the shore of Lake Geneva.
The two Belle Époque buildings at the Boulevard du Théâtre 8 and 10 were raised in 1900 as prestigious residential buildings in the centre of town. In 1970, the buildings were converted into mixed office/retail buildings.
In 2014 and 2015, the two building sections were redeveloped and structurally altered to the specifications of a Swiss private bank at great cost. In the process, the two houses were connected with each other. No costs or efforts were spared.
Only choice and high-spec materials were used for the alteration. The idea was to live up to the historic and prestigious aspiration of the house as much as to the requirements of modern office landscapes. It was a balancing act between two eras, and it was accomplished with a flourish.
Having to accommodate both historic architecture and the requirements of modern companies is no mean feat for an architect. But in the case of the office building at Boulevard du Théâtre 8-10 in the financial district of Geneva, the task was masterfully achieved.
State-of-the-art offices with modern fit-out features spread across 6 floors of both houses on a total floor area of about 2,300 sqm. The units can be flexibly divided by floor. The two basement levels are used as storage areas and for plant rooms.
The mechanical and electrical engineering meets the highest standards. From CAT 7 cabling to modern air conditioning technology, and from kitchenettes to a cafeteria, the premises feature everything today’s companies expect.

Reception, meeting and office areas are spread across the 6 floors of the two buildings. The premises are accessed via two separate entranceways. Access is provided by a staircase and lift in either house. If needed, it would not require a major effort to separate the two buildings.
The interior fit-out is simultaneously highly presentable and adapted to the needs of modern companies. During the structural alteration to the specifications of a renowned Swiss private bank, only materials of superior quality were used.
A cafeteria is integrated into the building. The two basement levels are used as storage areas and for plant rooms.
