Swiss architects firm Lacroix Chessex has completed the renovation of the Chalet Noisettes.
The project consists in a double extension and renovation of a century-old log cabin located in Gryon, in the Swiss Alps.
The facades made of natural larch artificially aged blend in very well with the existing home.
Located at an elevation of 5,500 feet, The WhitePod Alpine eco resort in the Swiss Alps is a unique concept designed to be in harmony with the surrounding environment whilst still benefiting from a comfortable habitat.
The WhitePod Camp features 15 unique geodesic-dome pods surrounding a central traditional wooden chalet.
Their design plan was to completely integrate the villa into the landscape to avoid disturbing the unspoiled nature.
That is why access to the villa is only possible via the nearby wooden Graubünder shed, through an underground tunnel which runs straight through the mountainside.
