Designed as a harmonious blend of a living space’s splendour with the natural world around it, Chalet Vale Perkins aims to have the lowest possible impact on its surroundings by achieving synchronicity with the environment and reducing its carbon emissions. The chalet also prioritizes the health and well-being of its residents through connectivity with nature, sustainable materials, and easy access to the greenery and water around it. As an extension of the original property, it creates space for a growing family with new connected space based on equal parts communal living and seclusion.
