Towards the end of the 18th century, the benefits of the water from the Arve River were discovered. The Beau-Séjour property was then transformed into a resort and the eponymous hotel was built, a luxurious hydrotherapy hotel boasting 200 rooms. The institution has welcomed famous people, such as the writer Guy de Maupassant or the composer Camille Saint-Saëns. The Arve River waters are used in all its forms: Baths, showers, vapours, and fumigations.
The Arve River crosses through borders and is fed by the glaciers of the Mont-Blanc mountains. In order to save the river from the damage of human exploitation, communities on both sides of the border have joined together by creating the Arve River Contract. This first agreement of its kind coordinates actions to preserve the river on both Swiss and French territory and carries these actions into reality.
Ateliers Jean Nouvel, in charge of the architectural concept for the new CEVA stations, followed the glass brick road. Although they are all different in shape and size, the stations have one thing in common: their glass bricks. They can be easily identified. Used as a wall, floor or roof element, these bricks allow natural light to filter through.
