Grand Hotel Courmayeur Mont Blanc arises from a clear project idea: to integrate a contemporary architecture in a charming and suggestive landscape respecting the traditions and materials of the location.
4 chalets, each one covered by a pitched roof with sheets and local materials as wood and stone for the facades that well combine with the glass windows of the main chalet. The north side looks onto Mont Blanc and Breva glacier and the south one onto the forest and Courmayeur.

Architecture is a project of development; it’s about inquiring, exploring new ground, about experimentation. It’s working with the landscape, trying to find integration with the material, with proportions. It’s about understanding pictures, their impacts and coloring. For us this process starts from the context and is culturally determined.

The building is located in the historical center of a small town, in a densely built-up area that does not offer particularly fine views towards around. The property, donated to a young boy by his grandmother, had been subjected in the past to a major restructuring but presented some critical issues that compromised the use and that had to be resolved with radical interventions. First of all the lack of light in the interior.
