Is winter your favorite season? Do you like skiing and spending time in snow-filled mountains? Even if you answered both questions “no”, you wouldn’t resist going to the French Alps if you were the owner of Chalet Béranger, the most recent project of talented French interior architect and designer Noé Duchaufour Lawrance.
Just completed in December 2011, this three-storey log cabin is located in St. Martin de Belleville, a village in the middle of Les 3 Vallées, and expands on to 530 square meters + 100 square meters devoted to a barn area serving as a guest house.
Chalet Béranger by Noé Duchaufour Lawrance:
“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.”
Noé Duchaufour Lawrance was recognized by a wider public in 2007, when he was elected as the “Designer of the year” at Maison & Objet in Paris. Some of his work includes bottle for fragrances “One Million” (2009) and “Lady Million” (2010) by Paco Rabanne, architectural identity of YSL cosmetics (2009), Air France salons at Tokyo Narita airport (2007), Gallery BSL in Paris (2010), furniture for Cecotti Collezioni (2006-2011), for Cinna (2010) etc. Many of the projects express his approach to luxury through exploring organic, sculptural and sensual design in which colors and forms confront; brush against each other in order to dissolve better. Lawrance’s aestheticism is accentuated in natural forms that are flexible, organic, fluid and sometimes even structured.
What else to say except excellent work Mr Duchaufour Lawrance, we are definitely fans of your aesthetics!
