story 

a story of skills meeting demand


After several years' work with DEM Geneva, Guy Wachsmuth took over his premises in the old town and set up his own company, Nuances Architecture d'Intérieur.


During his 27 years in business, he collaborated in particular with MVT Architects, sharing the work load with them. This synergy brought them closer together. 


In 2016, MVT Architects offered to acquire Nuances from Guy Wachsmuth. 


In October 2016, Julie Wittgenstein became managing director.

individual management of bespoke projects


Nuances has many years of experience and takes special care with regard to the quality of workmanship, services and deadlines. 


Design

Nuances will support and guide you in the design of your project, whether residential or professional, in Switzerland or abroad, avoiding repetitive or imposed style, while advising you on the choice of components: fabrics, materials, furniture, lighting, works of art and decorative pieces. 


Analysis

Nuances will design and draw up plans and details for the interior layout and installation. They will also prepare a detailed breakdown of the

works with itemised quotations to control the budget. Nuances works in collaboration with architects, engineers and landscape designers.



Execution

Drawing on their expertise and professional network of carefully chosen businesses, Nuances will coordinate and carry out the work to the agreed schedule.
