Nestled in the Swiss, the eco-chalets coexist with the mountainside allowing for an environmentally preserved hospitality experience amongst the alpine landscape. Made entirely with Swiss materials and products, the larch wood paneled exterior creates a seamless transition between the structures and mountainous environment while also evoking the design of a traditional Swiss chalet. A central bloc containing all services separates the volume of the chalet with the night part composed of 3 bedrooms on one side and the day part with the entrance, dining room and the living room on the other side
