The Chalet Les Gentianes 1850, an elegantly outfitted cabin, is part of a ski resort in Courchevel, high up in the French Alps.
The spaces exude rustic elegance, and are fitted for every comfort anybody could ever need when visiting the mountains for a skiing vacation.
Anu Puustinen and Ville Hara from Helsinki-based studio Avanto Architects have designed this contemporary cabin for themselves.
Located in Virrat, a small town in Finland 170 miles away from Helsinki, this 839 square-foot black and white cabin has no running water nor electricity.
Heated only with wood stoves, far from the city noise, the cabin offers restful tranquility and relaxed pace of life with a minimum impact on its environment.
