Ultra-modern Mountain Chalet, an unexpected Alpine ski retreat


We love the juxtaposition between this traditional mountain setting and ultra-modern chalet, by interior designer Noe Duchaufour Lawrance. From its rustic style exterior, this mountain home embodies the allure of this altitude and all its charms – the wonderful natural palette of materials, the welcoming aesthetic, the warm glowing windows with the crisp white snow as a backdrop, set here in an Alpine village in the middle of Les 3 Vallees, one of the world’s largest ski resort regions. But inside, this contemporary home isn’t quite what you’d expect. Minimalist interiors feature white on white when it comes to architectural elements and furnishings. The flowing floor plan lets you float effortlessly from one living space to the next, with different materials used to finish the walls and define different living spaces. Underfoot, where you might expect rustic wood-plank floors, the designer opted instead for cool, polished cast cement. One this hasn’t changed in this ski haven – the fireplace is an instant hotspot, though for exactly as you’d expect. This bold concrete fixture drops from the ceiling and rises from the floor, with the room designed around it. Up the ultra-chic staircase, five bedrooms with ensuites, a hot tub and a playroom offer space for rest, relaxation and play. Noe Duchaufour Lawrance
