Montagne Alternative, Orsieres, Switzerland
Timeless and charming, this secluded sky high village is a centuries old community that had existed in splendid isolation and self sufficient autonomy since it’s formation. Now re-imagined with a stunning collection of beautifully renovated cabins and barns, each has been lightly and imaginatively renovated to preserve all of their original, rugged character but with fresh, energetic style. The subtle modern influences and clean contemporary lines were achieved using rustic materials and minimal decor while enlightening and expanding the interiors with outsized windows that capture the views. It’s a seamless preservation that honors and compliments the environment and spirit of the community.
