Nestlé HQ - Vevey

Best company HQ #2– Nestlé (Vevey, Switzerland)

Nestlé’s headquarter in Vevey (Switzerland) is a magnificent building. Dated from 1960, it is truly a work of art designed by Jean Tschum:
the timeless elegance of these buildings [Nestlé’s HQ, Debiopharm in Lausanne, the World Health Organization in Geneva] testifies to the genius of a Swiss architect who stood outside the conventions of the post-war era.

From the outside, what strikes you as a first impression from the building, is the way the Geneva Lake is framed within the buiding’s lobby (as I tried to capture on the image below):

You if enter the building, and cross the lobby, you’ll be facing the Geneva Lake directly and it’s surrounding snow mountains:
