Buffet de la Gare - Lausanne

Contemporary cuisine in a time-honoured locale

A century after the construction of Lausanne station, the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) implemented a major scheme for its complete modernisation. Steiner was appointed to work with the architects and other designers on refurbishing the Buffet de la Gare restaurant. The remodelling concept for the period interior was developed in close collaboration with the local architectural conservation authority to ensure preservation of the historic building fabric. Among other things, the north-west stairway was renovated, paintings of former destinations restored and the Buffet room floor fitted with an oiled, solid-wood parquet covering. The joinery fittings, originally made in Japanese oak by a celebrated Montreux pattern-maker, were faithfully restored.

 

Much of the contract focused on the wholesale modernisation of the building services systems: the plumbing, ventilation and electrical installations along with the fire safety provision no longer met contemporary standards and had to be fully upgraded. To complement the nostalgic design concept with modern culinary offerings, the SBB appointed the Tibits restaurant chain to operate the refurbished establishment. The vegetarian and vegan cuisine now adds a contemporary allure to the time-honoured locale.
