architecture and interior design 

in geneva since 1989

a story of skills meeting demand 


The Inuit have about ten words to describe the different varieties of white that are available to them. In his romance, E. L. James puts forward some Fifty nuances of Grey. The PANTONE colour chart range offers 1867 colours in direct tones...

NUANCES is also an interior design firm, created in 1989 by Guy Wachsmuth, and integrated into MVT architectes in 2017. 

Under the still passionate watchful eye of its founder, it is now being taken over by Sonia Christin, in charge of the office, and Fanny Dupanloup, recent winner of the Teo Jakob Prize and the Prize of the Swiss Association of Interior Architects (VSI-ASAI).

NUANCES likes challenges and to find a solution adapted to each project submitted to it. Whether it is a classified interior, a newborn restaurant or offices to humanize, Sonia and Fanny model, decorate, revisit and accompany with an all-inclusive approach and a true sensitivity to healthy and natural materials.

NUANCES creates tailor-made interiors that are places of life, joy, rest, pleasure or rejuvenation. Places that suit you. Authentic spaces.

Our story is to be followed on social networks.
And our latest projects to be discovered at the beginning of the school year in September 2019.

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.
