The Bel-Air Métropole complex is a major component of Lausanne’s urban heritage. The tower itself is one of the city’s principal landmarks, while the building’s two wings mark the stretch from the Grand-Pont to the Place Chauderon, also providing a link between the levels of the Flon district and the Place Bel-Air.

The goal is to revitalise the building to better correspond with its image. The project aims to create a beacon in the center of Lausanne by highlighting the complex’s advantages: the Bel-Air tower, the Métropole concert hall, and the building’s architecture.
The complex was built between 1929 and 1932 by the architect Alphonse Laverrière. During its construction, Bel-Air Métropole was at the root of a lot of controversy related to the disruption of the urban landscape. The complex is now registered on the “Swiss Inventory of Cultural Property of National and Regional Significance”, and the tower is currently the subject of a major renovation to make the building more in harmony with its environment.
