The project for the commercial customs building of Martigny (Valais, Switzerland) forms a long rectangle that stretches along the eastern edge of the site. Thanks to its location and to the compactness of its volume the building leaves evacuate almost all the area of the parcel intended for traffic and parking lots of heavy vehicles. The program is divided into three levels: a basement is occupied by the service garage and two floors with a shed roof.
