For our build we chose a traditional Swiss chalet design sourcing natural, local materials where possible.
Local reputated Udry Constructions made a great job to build this gorgeous chalet.
The wooden exterior is clad in larch, known locally as mélèze, a traditional timber used in chalet construction that can withstand the weathering effect of the alpine sun.
The terrace decking is also constructed from mélèze, a durable wood that requires no chemical preservative treatment.
The chimney, guttering and downpipes are all made from solid copper that's built to last.
Dropping the kitsch décor of a Swiss chalet, Rosa Colet, a prestigious Barcelona-based interior designer has created a contemporary yet cosy holiday hideaway.
The drive of the design was towards pure and clean lines with a sense of lightness and neutral colours. The designer concentrated on the design of pure and clean lines of the 160 square meters lodge and carefully selected a palette of natural materials.
The walls throughout the house are covered by panels of rough mélèze timber. Flooring is made up of Italian stone and floating parquet.
A palette of neutral and natural colours is to be found throughout the all house, including grey and limestone microcement in the bathrooms.
The kitchen in black colour with its island countertop gives a cool and industrial feel, which contrasts with the timber surroundings of the chalet.
The sitting area of the living room faces a glassed wall with astonishing views of the Alps and the Rhône valley.
The same concept is applied in the bedrooms. Local carpenter handmade all bedrooms furniture, introducing some contemporary elements to break up the feeling of the wooden box.
