ECSUS Design Commissioned To Build Large Chalet In St Gervais, Alps, France

ECSUS Design is pleased to have been commissioned to build a large chalet, using SIPs, in Saint Gervais ski resort this summer.

The stunning site, pictured below, with views of Mont Blanc, will house a 480sqm chalet (including terraces and garage) – the largest chalet we’ve built so far in the Alps. Saint Gervais is a beautiful little resort, boasting a ski area linked to Megeve. Today’s meeting with the mairie about the plans was very productive and we’re expecting work to move quickly, with the chalet habitable next winter (17/18). We’ll be posting updates on progress on our Facebook page and blog.
