Chalet in Château-d’Oex by RBCH Architectes


From 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.
