« The architect has the ability and benefit to see what is not. He imagines and gives life to a future that does not yet exist. »
Dominique Zanghi – Director, m3 ARCHITECTURE
Created in 2019, m3 ARCHITECTURE is a Geneva-based office of architects and urban planners directed by Dominique Zanghi, an architect with more than 30 years’ experience in Geneva.
Beyond its functional and aesthetic aspect, architecture is a central element around which our way of life, economic activities and social relationships are organized.
A multidisciplinary field par excellence, it is a cultural marker that is part of the identity of a geographical area and a community.
In addition to architectural services, m3 ARCHITECTURE also offers expertise in urban planning and participates, through the development and construction of many new projects, in the emergence of the Geneva of tomorrow.
Working on the form…
We address the aesthetic aspect of all developments with a modern, contemporary approach, concentrating on bringing out the beauty of the place and enhancing the quality of life of the residents.
Thus, for our architects a building should not only be beautiful on paper – its aesthetic success also lies in its ability to integrate into an environment that promotes better living over time. Our teams conduct extensive studies to design beautiful, luminous projects in total harmony with the surrounding space.
…Without forgetting the function
Whether it is to imagine accommodation, business premises or public places, the architectural form must always follow its function. The architect must be able to anticipate habits and future uses to design today’s spaces that will always be relevant to improve tomorrow’s daily life.
Improving on what already exists
In addition to new projects, m3 ARCHITECTURE also handles renovations and conversions of existing buildings. We bring you original technical solutions to optimize the value of a property, increase its capacity or modify its purpose.
Making city life easier
To cope with its strong growth and to prepare for the future, the city must respond to concerns about mobility, accessibility and sharing increasingly complex public spaces. m3 ARCHITECTURE has specialized teams to solve this type of problem.
The achievements of our architects
Chemin des Bûcherons
Developed on a plot of about 15,000 m² in a residential area located on the Vessy plateau.
Four buildings composed of three aisles of four- and five-room dual-aspect apartments.
1st prize in the St. Petersburg Central Naval Museum competition.
The project consists of four parts: the building that protects the Narodovolets D-2 submarine; the common areas of the museum (entrance, bar, shop, restaurant); exhibition halls of remembrance, discovery and knowledge; and the restaurant terrace opening onto the garden and the Kilo-class “Black Hole” submarine port.
Led by an experienced chef associated with an expert at a prestigious hotel, our team is inspired by the latest trends to open creative establishments in strategic locations in the city with strong development potential.
