Nestled amongst the trees on the slopes of Manigod Ski Resort in France is this minimal mountain house designed by Studio Razavi Architects. The firm had to comply with stringent architectural guidelines allowing for very little freedom of architectural expression. In order to circumvent these limitations, Studio Razavi took great care in analysing local historical buildings and then integrated their findings into the design, avoiding all artificial and/or obsolete elements while making sure that the building was code compliant. The result is an ultra modern cabin with cosy bedrooms and living spaces built with raw wood, cement and steel, furnished with new and old pieces that pay homage to the surrounding buildings from a bygone era.
