The point of departure
How could this micro-territory be brought out of isolation?
In the framework of equipping these two buildings with thermal insulation, the town of Vevey wanted to provide a strong cultural dimension to change the negative image of this poorly considered urban space and reduce its isolation in relation to the town and the region of Vaud.
Action / result
Thanks to the genius of Charlie Chaplin, this project with global impact restored the pride of an entire population, giving them a new sense of belonging and history; it also allowed reconnecting this district with the city centre by giving it an urban role to play. Previously given a bad image, Gilamont has now found its identity. People come to visit it and it has become the pride of its inhabitants.
