Modern Swiss Chalet Adds Fresh Updates to a Classic Style
By Freshome.com on Apr 07, 2013
Chalet Gstaad is a private holiday chalet in the Swiss Alps, designed by Laurence Rouveure of Ardesia Design in collaboration with Amaldi Neder Architects. The architects looked to create a warm, cozy atmosphere using a natural palette of neutral colors and soft textures such as linen and wool. The designer focused on creating pure and clean lines, as well as a sense of unity to the whole of the 380 square meters of this beautiful lodge.
The walls of this chalet are covered in Australian rough timber and the floor is made of Danish fir planks of up to 15m long. In the bedrooms, wool and cashmere fabric have been mounted—instead of a headboard—to break up the all-wood appearance. The bathrooms are plastered in marmorino (or tadelakt) to create a contrast to the wood while keeping with the natural theme. The furniture is a mix of new, contemporary furniture, traditional pieces and eclectic finds sourced from all over Europe.
