Chalet, Le Lavancher, Chamonix

In the heart of Chamonix valley located 87 km from the international airport of Geneva, and home to Mont Blanc, Shape Studio has created a dynamic chalet in the small village of Le Lavancher. The studio has worked to challenge the typical chalet design with this property working with a dynamic theme of volume. The structure is centred around four voluminous sections projecting out in to the build’s environment and allowing the spectacular landscape to encroach in to the living space via expansive glass openings.

The chalet can accommodate 12 people in six bedrooms and is fully equipped with state of the art technologies and amenities. An indoor swimming pool is incorporated in to the space positioned to draw in the valley views. A spa, a gym and a relaxation room are also dispersed around this space.

The interior style draws an eclectic yet perfectly balanced composition of materials, inspired by its mountain setting and applied with the highest level of Italian craftsmanship. Rich woods and stone are flanked with buttery leathers and the finest hides throughout. The resulting space offers a decadent yet functional chalet, balancing the experience of mountain living yet with a unique dynamism to the traditional chalet build.
