Extreme Luxury Displayed by Chalet K2 in the French Alps

Mountain chalets in the Alps have started being more and more in line with overall modern trends. As a supporter of genuine design and with my deep respect for tradition (when it reflect the correct values, that is), I tend to disagree with this process of “generalizing”. Modern chalets should not all turn modern and start looking the same; after all, some of the things we crave for in a winter holiday is coziness and originality. Chalet K2 is located in the prestigious resort of Courchevel 1850, a complex with 7 elegant chalets (5 for rent), connected through underground corridors.

Despite its extreme luxurious features, the chalet displays elegance and a few traditional decorations. According to the official resort description, “each chalet has a spacious living room with a fireplace, a contemporary dining room and a fully equipped kitchen. The lounge area includes a home cinema and bar. Large bay windows brighten the interior and there are wide terraces on several levels for relaxation”. How would you comment on the design ideas presented in the photos below?

An example of a huge success is Heneghan Peng Architects’ Giant’s Causeway Visitors’ Centre in Antrim, Northern Ireland. Using the large difference in level across the site, the architects created two folds in the landscape. Bold, but not conflicting with the rather bleak natural environment, these folds draw all the man-made areas together and create one fitting man-made break in the natural landscape. In the words of the architects themselves, There is no longer a building and a landscape, but building becomes landscape and the landscape itself remains spectacular and iconic

These days, a building doesnt just have to look good, it should ideally be good for the environment too. A great example of sustainability spliced with style from the past few years is the M&S store at Cheshire Oaks Retail Park in Ellesmere Port, designed by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.
