KCAP wins second prize in competition Morges Gare Sud

KCAP was awarded with the second prize in the competition Morges Gare Sud, an architectural competition for 48.000 m² of housing, offices, hotel, retail, school and the train station.

The project is located in the city of Morges' station area, where KCAP has been previously involved in an urban study.

Due to growth of population and city in this main connection between Geneva and Lausanne, the municipality aims to combine densification with good accessibility and high living quality.

KCAP's proposal consists of a 'family of architecture', searching a good balance between the ensemble’s coherence and diversity. KCAP teamed up with Morger Dettli Architekten Basel, Schweingruber Zulauf (landscape) and EBP (engineering). In total, 12 participants took part in the competition. The first prize was won by Aeby Perneger Associés from Switzerland.
