NEW MANUFACTURE DE HAUTE HORLOGERIE AUDEMARS PIGUET by Kunik de Morsier architectes
Iwan Baan

Kunik de Morsier Architectes has developed a workspace for a Swiss luxury watch manufacturer in the Jura mountains with time and space created in appreciation of its natural surroundings.


The project offers optimised spaces for the design and production of watches, alongside spaces for employees to exchange ideas, take part in meetings and to enjoy socialising.

The design is developed around the wellbeing of the craftsmen and the experience of users during their visit, while anticipating the future challenges of the industry and work habits.

Built horizontally on the hill, the structure fits discreetly into the landscape resulting from the folds of the Jura. The contours and materials are chosen to intensify the user’s or visitor’s experience of the environment, natural light, and the movement of the sun.


This project has been longlisted in the business building category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
