We’ve now finished up on Chalet Kanjiroba, a big renovation project in La Daille. It will be run by chalet operators Le Ski from this season as a catered chalet. The photos below were taken by Vanessa Fry (click on any of the photos below for sliding gallery).
Chalet Kanjiroba is a part of one of the oldest buildings in Val d’Isère and presented quite a few challenges. To preserve the original style of the chalet, we had to work with rooms that were tall and thin, with unusual shapes in places.
There was also a lot of structural work and we had to create spaces in some of the original walls which are over a metre-and-a-half thick. We did the project in two parts, with a complete rebuild at the front and renovation in the back half.
For the oak flooring, we used recovered wood from old buildings to maintain the rustic feel.
