Our architectural studio was asked to take care of drafting up a project, and of worksite follow-ups, in order to obtain the construction permit for the renovation of a farm in Vallorcine, a small village in the Chamonix valley. Once we had started demolition work, the team of architects discovered that the structure of the buildings, hidden over time by several alterations, was in the process of collapsing. We therefore decided, with the client's agreement, that it would be more advantageous, for financial and safety reasons, to demolish and rebuild the whole building. Considering our client's passion for the aesthetics of the old farm, we decided to reconstruct the building, saving the appearance of the exterior, and reproducing the charm of the old structure inside. The choice of contrasting the old wood structure and some antique items with modern furniture gives the space warmth and variety.
