Les Gentians 1850 is a wonderful winter chalet, that embraces the staggering beauty of the environment and offers a pleasant experience wrapped in comfort and style. The elegant wooden chalet, located in Courchevel, the French Alps, is the perfect winter retreat. Courchevel is a ski resort with plenty of facilities: restaurants, bars and last but not least, nightlife. One of the best things about this resort is the winter wonderland kind of atmosphere, with trees all covered in a white sugar coated snow.
Inside, big and fluffy beanbags, nearby the fireplace and smooth textures embellish the rough-like interior, (almost) entirely wrapped in wood. In addition, the chalet has its own interior swimming pool, jacuzzi and a dry room. Blending rustic elements with gorgeous contemporary elements of design, the chalet’s style reflects a high standard of comfort. The excellent location, the services and the beautiful views, make Les Gentianes 1850 one of the top winter destination choices. Moreover, due to the particular climate, you can enjoy skiing in Courchevel from the beginning of the winter season until Easter. Do you like this picturesque chalet?
A good building should make you want to look at it. Even if not always liked by passers-by, it should always make them feel something. Manchester Metropolitan’s University’s business school is a building that effortlessly fits this criteria. Indeed for many, the building by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios is their first taste of the architecture of Manchester as they travel along the arterial road, Mancunian Way. With its distinct ski-slope roof, and glittering mirrored appearance, it provides a flash of silver, and a dazzling break from the dull greys of the motorway, greeting motorists in a slightly space-age way as they enter the city
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.
