This was crafted by MAPA offers an idyllic refuge for its denizens as it sits on a countryside-beach lot in Uruguay. Bringing together the charm of open fields and a beautiful lagoon with the breezy freshness of the sea the small prefab is all about functionality ahead of form.
Designed by SeARCH the overall form of Chalet Anzère was inspired by traditional chalet design and construction in this part of Switzerland. Unlike more contemporary and commercial structures with multiple gables the design of this magical modern home is far more ergonomic and suited to the local weather. A garage towards the back of the home offers entry into the fabulous abode with an elevator carved into the mountain connecting its three different levels.
The top level has been altered into a mezzanine level with the private spaces that embrace the Nordic flavor and ergonomics of the living area. A custom wooden staircase with glass railing steals the show in this exquisite Montreal home even as the small outdoor deck promises relaxing evenings throughout the warmer months.
