la clusaz altitude 1647 chalet: the old chalet altitude 1647, at the top of the ski slopes of french ski station la clusaz, has the potential to host a new type of hotel in the region. between the comfort of the ski village in the valley and the rudimentary services of the pass-through hotels in higher altitude, no current offering exists that allow for a higher-end hospitality experience on the slopes. this renovation project aims at filling the gap.
the commune of la clusaz is part of france’s haute-savoie département. we respect the contextual requirements of the traditional chalet style of the original building while introducing a tasteful extension made of contemporary materials.
