Chalet Les Grandes Baimes
In 2011 we were appointed by a private client to substantially extend and entirely refurbish a large chalet in the resort of Val D’Isere, France. The existing chalet included a large living space and dining room served by a modest kitchen, contained 8 bedrooms with en suite bathrooms along with a staff flat and parking for two cars.
We worked closely with the client to adapt the existing chalet to meet their needs, creating one of the largest single, private family chalets in the exclusive la legettaz area of Val D’Isere.
At ground level the existing two car garage has been transformed into a principal entrance and luxury boot room with direct access to an enlarged lift, wine store and the newly created underground garage with car parking for 5 large vehicles. On the first floor the staff flat and service stairs have been removed to form a new family day room, central open stair and access to the Hammam, spa and 12m long swimming pool, washed with natural light from four large roof lights, created within the extension. Below the pool sits the garage, above the swimming pool the profile and landscaping of the mountain side has been reinstated including the stream and freshwater pool that were diverted during the works. Rising up through the chalet a new series of spaces and re configured stairs lead to a relaxed informal living room with adjacent snug and games are along with a dining room serviced by an enlarged professional kitchen.
The chalet now contains a total of 9 bedrooms, including a master suite with double height bedroom space, large en suite bathroom and dressing suite.
