Architecture studioBo Design envisioned and implemented the sophisticated Chalet Cyanella, a luxurious mountain cabin located in Megève, French Alps. If you recall, not too long ago we featured another resembling mountain retreat on our site, designed by Paul Bowyer and located in Switzerland. With an exterior defined by wood and plenty of terraces, the project manages to take in the surrounding landscape and deliver it to its guests. An open plan living and dining area sets the tone for a relaxed ambiance, complete with plenty of natural light and good airflow. A central sofa, large enough to accommodate a big family or a large group, acts as an open invite to holiday socializing. The fireplace and chandelier add elegance, as well as aesthetic value. One of the most captivating features of Chalet Cyanella is its swimming pool- be sure to check out the video at the end of the post and tell us what you think!
