Combine spectacular surroundings and love for modern architecture and you end up with the stunning Chalet Béranger. Located in a wonderful French ski resort – St Martin de Belleville – this comforting permanent residence is home to 5,700 square feet of sleek and chic modern interior spaces spread over three levels. The village nestled in the middle of Les 3 Vallées in the French Alps ensures this particular cottage gets the best views and a lot of fresh air. The comfort of contemporary interior design was merged with a traditional exterior only to construct a wood and stone dream home.

Completed in December 2011, this stunning alpine ski lodge was designed by French designer and interior architect , who describes the inspiration at the base of this unusually comfortable style: “Far from the geometric construction methods of a traditional chalet, the interior architecture of this family home is a domestic landscape whose forms emerge from the ground like small functional mountains rising from a valley. Resolutely fluid and modern, the result is a set of lines and organic forms composed around a wooden ribbon. A large, main room is set above the whole construction, defining the central point of the chalet where the family comes together around a warm hearth.”
