WIA converted this redundant farmhouse in the Haute-Savoie region of the French Alps into a family home. The house dates from 1822 and although in good condition it had not been updated since the 1950s.
Willmore Iles completed measured surveys and a concept design. Planning applications and building permits were made by local architects Herve Monnet Architecte DPLG.
Our scheme retains much of the original fabric but incorporates contemporary styled interventions. The owner has a collection of 20th century furniture which is set off by the neutral decoration. Subtle strip windows were inserted below the eaves. These cannot be seen from a distance, but provide brilliant snow-reflected lighting to the loft space during the winter months.
