Slated Completion 2020. Size: 8,000 s.f , Megève, France
The sprawling addition to this rustic chalet wraps around the property and is dappled in sun by a one hundred year old Oak tree of the residence’s namesake.
The client’s request to preserve the large Oak tree was a driving force in designing the footprint and arranging of the en-suites as well. Each suite overlooks the French Alps leaving the single Oak tree out of the sight lines. It’s in this that the Oak tree becomes a sanctuary to relax in the shade during summer months. This addition includes four new suites, rooms for live-in staff, ample storage, parking and relocates the kitchen into the vertex between the existing chalet and the new wing. By opening onto the second floor patio, everyone has a direct connection to the outdoor sauna. All the while the kitchen now opens onto a white marble patio to serve meals to guests on the stepped terrace overlooking the mountaintops.
