New CEVA stations

The city of Geneva is home to five stations along the new Cornavin – Eaux-Vives – Annemasse (CEVA) cross-border train line that connects Geneva’s Cornavin station in Switzerland to the Annemasse station in France.

The buildings of the five stations were built according to the same “glass brick” architectural design aimed at bringing light all the way to the platform level. The glass brick is a glass facade element  inspired by the glass paving stones used in 1930s architecture  (Immeublé Clarté by Le Corbusier). They are used as roof, wall and floor elements.


The SBB and the State of Geneva have developed a new urban centre in the vicinity of the Lancy - Pont-Rouge station, including the creation of some 550 housing units developed by the Canton and a sector of activity ideally accessible by public transport.
