Chalet in Chateau-d’Oex, Switzerland by RBCH architectes

Situated in a residential area in Château d’Oex, this new building was thought as a replacement for the former house whose size and outer layer failed to meet present day standards for a family home. The structure of this new building is made of poles and beams as a reference to the local traditional chalet. This structure also offers flexibility in the working of the outer layer as prefabricated wooden units fit into the pole structure. This is like a game and allows both a quick and cost-effective construction. Fir tree wood was mostly used as it is the main local building material. It allows a homogenous reading and emphasises the brightness of the inner structure.

RBCH 
RBCH Architectes was created in 2005 when former fellow student architects of the Engineering and Architecture School of Fribourg decided to mingle their personal architectural views. Together, they aim at developing an experimental approach combining a close observation of the building site along with the analyses of a subject-matter. They dwell on interdisciplinary exchanges, innovative solutions and original practice. They want each project to be articulated as a coherent and clever composition responding to the client’s need and budget.
