Chalet Noisettes by Lacroix Chessex 9 Easy To Spot Upgrade Of Century Old Chalet In The Swiss Alps

Located in the Swiss Alps, in the municipality of Gryon, Chalet Noisettes needed an upgrade that would extend the living spaces and bring the century-old log cabin up to date. Swiss architectural studio Lacroix Chessex started renovating the chalet and extending its beautified modern shape to accommodate the inhabitant’s needs. This renovation brought a new life to both the cabin and its surroundings, unifying the modern design with the existing one. Natural larch was artificially aged to construct an interesting blend with the old building. Extending the cabin meant more room for the family and guests and a new modern appeal. Colors were slightly adjusted on the exterior, while the interior received a dynamic use of vivid shades in the private zone. The living areas were kept natural and in perfect balance with the natural surrounding colors. The improved Chalet Noisettes now welcomes family and friends with five bedrooms and two bathrooms and a challenging design combining old and new.
