Located in the center of historical Vevey, Switzerland, Riviera Loft is a three-story residence set within an industrial building from the 1900s. Rich with texture and history, the Riviera Loft project was approached with the ambition to preserve the character of the industrial space while still allowing for updates and modern conveniences to accommodate a growing family.

To achieve this duality, exterior walls were retained, and focus was placed on fostering a “lightness” within the interior. Solid walls were softened with rounded corners, and wherever possible, transparent glass was used to embrace natural light and open the space.

Each level was designed to serve a specific purpose, with the first level dedicated to the living spaces, the second floor designed for the children’s rooms and a common space, and the third floor featuring the primary bedroom and bathrooms. A dramatic circular staircase connects all three levels together, reflecting, in form, the original circular window that lines the southern facade. A tonal palette of light oak wood, smoked glass, and black marble is used throughout to create a minimal backdrop for a curated furniture and art collection.

“When designing Riviera Loft, it was crucial to maintain the same sense of place provided by the industrial elements while devising a layout that meets the needs and requirements of the Client,” says Principal Nuno Ravara. “Ultimately, the history of the building informed the design, and crafted an interconnected relationship between the industrial elements and the family’s modern lifestyle.”
