The French top interior designer and architect, Pierre Yovanovitch reinterpreted the typical interiors of a chalet in the mountains but added a contemporary touch. This house in the mountains was born from the process of humble sophistication and moderated luxury that beautifully outlines the beauty of the surrounding landscape.
The result is refined, yet simple interior design project, a contemporary space that honors the traditional aesthetics of the region.

“I wanted to create an interesting, yet inviting, space without detracting from the stunning view of the surrounding Alps,” says Yovanovitch. “To do this, I incorporated design elements inspired by the region, such as the cantilevered staircase made of spruce and inspired by rural fences. I worked with specialty craftsman from throughout Europe to create custom furniture pieces which I mixed with vintage furniture and art, such as Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone’s stone sculpture.”

The 550-square-meters house is divided into two areas: night and living area. On the lower level of this luxury apartment, there is the kitchen, a fireplace area and a reception area with wide windows. On the upper level, there are the four bedrooms: the master bedroom, the kid’s bedroom, and two others for guests.

The interiors are characterized by a wide use wood adapted to the irregular shape of the building, typical of the local tradition.  Although the design appropriates several elements of local alpine architecture, Yovanovitch integrates them into the aesthetic avoiding the obvious or kitsch.
