L’Alpage, Val d’Abondance
The word “cabin” implies an isolated dwelling set in a natural surrounding, a simple place close to Nature. But this is a “designer cabin” which, though high up on a mountain summit and ultra-functional, has all the necessary ingredients for the basic of comfortable living- for sleeping, eating and keeping warm. There are no lost spaces in this small chalet. Even the staircase treads incorporate storage and though the inside surfaces seem rustic they are meticulously finished with panels covered with Fenix NTM, a new strong and resistant material that is nevertheless soft to the touch. Black, wood and the simplicity of the materials used structure the space bringing a soothing geometry to areas uncluttered by pointless decorative objects.
Whether hiking across snowfields or enjoying long summer evenings the deceptively simple cabin offers a peaceful serenity far from any stress.
