chalet




Area: 550m2
Client: private
Location: Haute Savoie, France
Completion: 2015

Located on a sunny site, this chalet benefits from a panoramic view over the Morzine valley.

For this English client, this building is the materialisation of a life changing dream to move to France with his family.

The architecture is inspired by the traditional farm houses from Haute Savoie, with a stone cladded ground level and a recycled wood cladding supported by a traditional oak framework to the upper storeys.

The chalet enjoys the magnificent views from all the main rooms and from the main terrace and several balconies.

It is designed to comply with the current RT 2012 French thermal regulations in providing a significant amount of glazed openings allowing for solar gain and an insulation system without thermal bridges throughout.
