High up in the Italian Alps, a chalet offers a ski paradise. Designed by Tanja Haug, the home echoes original Alpine design while integrating modern luxuries.
“The whole chalet was built in the traditional building style, which was used 100 years ago in the region of Piemonte,” said Haug. “That means part stone and then wood on the upper levels.”
Reclaimed wood makes up the kitchen’s worktops and cabinets. “Although it was an open-plan kitchen, I wanted it to look as little as possible like a typical kitchen,” explained Haug.
The adjacent dining room uses the same wooden palette throughout, with the exception of the dining room tabletop. The glass-topped dining room table shows off the wooden structure underneath.
Philippe Stark-designed bathroom fittings, such as a heated bidet and a Japanese-style, remote-controlled toilet, add a subtle but glamorous luxury.
