New housing, administrative offices and shops have been developed at the entrance to the city of Nyon. The first stage of the Petite Prairie district, which includes 8 buildings, required the implementation of an overall visual identity of the exterior and interior of the buildings in order to guide users in a coherent way throughout the site. Inspired by the name of the site, we proposed a rigorous, custom-made graphic and signage system that would be visible and easily recognizable without distorting the sobriety of the site.

The system gives pride of place to numbers and different destination addresses in order to guide users as well as possible, and offers a serie of autonomous supports applied to the existing system that welcome visitors as soon as they enter the site and guide them to the housings, offices or shops they are looking for.
Over the next few years, the neighbourhood will be extended over two new stages of similar size to the one that already exists today. The system developed has taken these future developments into account and will be applied to them too to provide orientation and a visual language that will last for a long time.
