Belgian decorator Lionel Jadot  was commissioned to transform a former farmhouse into a spectacular chalet. Located near Megève, a major tourist resort in the French Alps, the project features two levels, the first of which accommodates the bedrooms. Above, there is an impressive open-plan living area, with a ceiling height of 12 meters. This particular interior is the focal point of the entire cabin. The abundance of wood and the colorful decorations give away a feeling of coziness, while the generously-sized windows flood the room in natural light.

The perfect image of a room surrounded by extensive mountain views is completed in this case by a traditional fireplace, located right in the middle. A lovely mix of vintage and traditional defines the interiors of the chalet; the designer chose to add personality to his project, by embedding various furniture and pieces belonging to different cultures from Africa, Asia and Europe.

Energy during the construction process was saved by using FSC-certified glulam timber instead of steel to create the building’s distinctive wavy roof, while the store’s external walls use hemclad, a highly innovative insulator made from hemp, which, like all plants, absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows. An 80,000 litre water tank below ground provides water for the store’s toilets and waters the site’s green wall’, which provides natural insulation, acts as an all-natural pollution filter near the car park, and helps to encourage biodiversity. The result is a building that uses a fraction of the energy of structures of a similar size, and is still very popular with local shoppers.

Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts
