Chalet Béranger

This gorgeous 530 square meter family home in the French Alps, located in the St. Martin de Belleville is inspired by the mountains and valleys in a modern twist. Designed by Noe Duchaufour Lawrance, the three storey construction and interior architecture are all built around the focal point of the chalet, a large room where the family comes together.  The communal spaces are located on the top floor and are isolated from the private quarters. A detached 100 square meter barn area works as a guest house.

When seen from outside, this chalet seems like an ordinary challet, but when you enter  you face an amazing contemporary space. Minimalism prevails along with many industrial elements such as steel and cement.  Instead of wooden floors the challet has screed cement flooring. The staircase is made of oxidized steel with concrete steps.  The fireplace is fabulous, a suspended metal structure with concrete coated exterior.

On the first floor, we see a Jacuzzi room a place for relaxing!  Hovering beds, cement sinks and designer furniture coplete a lovely interior. The interior design for the second floor (communal) draws inspiration from the surrounded nature something obvious in elements like  the sculptural table, fireplace and in the hearth centerpieces. The main lounge acts as the communal part of this chalet and the entire chalet has been constructed accordingly inspired by this space. The organic table is sculptured with concrete coated metal and is coated with fiberglass and corian. 

This out of the ordinary challet possesses many traits and very sophisticated interiors with very attractive and interesting design elements.
