The Geneva-based architect Joachim Fritschy has created a space of impact that gives Alpine vernacular a contemporary spin.
FRIT01 is a minimalist chalet located in Samoëns, France, designed by Joachim Fritschy. The small wooden cabin is a renovation in which the interior is clad almost entirely in wood. Large windows frame the surrounding French Alps landscape while also allowing abundant natural light to fill the entire space. The gabled roof utilizes skylights to provide light into the attic bedroom space.
