A page of history
The Tour Carrée road is not without its history. “La Tour Carrée” really did exist on the shores of the lake in the 18th Century and was apparently part of the port of the large Montalègre property, hence its name.
Charles-François Brot a rich Swiss banker, burgher of Geneva, acquired the property on the hill of Cologny in 1865 and had the tower built. The latter was unfortunately demolished when the lake quayside was enlarged.
In 1953, the Geneva Yacht Club established itself on the site to encourage sailing. In 1986 a simple clubhouse was built. Over the years the Club developed its activities and in 2007 built a new clubhouse, officially inaugurated in 2008.
A philosophy guided by the uniqueness and the unity of the location
Tour Carrée Residences were conceived thanks to the skills and the attention to detail etched by Bernard Ebeia and his architects, Bureau d’Etudes et d’Architecture (BEA SA), well known in Switzerland and worldwide for over 30 years.
“An architect must mirror the society of the day yet respect the character and the natural context of the place” he said. The Tour Carrée project has been executed with great care to protect the setting, in particular its stunning views and its rich verdant surroundings. The siting of the Residence has been carefully chosen and fits in with the natural environment as if it had always been there. On a land of this particularity only a high-quality project could do justice to the place. Quality materials such as wood or natural stone have been used elegantly both outdoors and indoors. Tour Carrée Residences; a cluster of considerations down to the very last detail.
