Le Planet Chalet 004


At Pangea Services we have carried out renovation projects on buildings with all kinds of unique architectural designs, this project was a continuation of that theme.

The Chamonix area is home to a wide variety of different styles of architecture. From extensions and modifications to complete overhauls, we are lucky to work on a great variety of construction and renovation projects. In this case, we delivered a full turnkey solution for a beautifully modern home in a remote part of the valley.

Unfortunately, the new owners had purchased a chalet which had been poorly renovated and it was therefore necessary to undo much of this work to make way for the improvements planned. Having managed many demolition and renovation projects before, our team were a perfect fit.

Much of the building was stripped back to facilitate the remodelling of the interior layout. Co-ordinating with our network of trusted local contractors, we arranged for a partial rewire during this time to improve and expand the electrical supply throughout the building. Much of the plumbing infrastructure also needed rebuilding, adding hot/cold/waste/extraction systems to support the redesigned bathrooms, wet-room and wellness area (hammam & sauna).

New electric underfloor heating systems were installed to bathrooms and redesigned lighting was installed throughout the chalet, further enhancing the feel of interior space.

The architectural interior required extensive modification to bring it up to the standard required by the new owners. We oversaw the installation of new internal ceilings, floors, walls and a mezzanine structure making use of attractive wooden panelling wherever possible to bring an air of light and warmth to the chalet in line with the vision of the client.

Our expertise enables us to deliver whatever features and modifications our clients’ desire. In this case we arranged fitment of two bespoke kitchens, including appliances and of course all the bespoke joinery required for a seamless finish. The property was completed with the addition of a hammam, sauna and a new decked terrace with hot tub.

The project was delivered on time, ready for the Client’s summer holidays in their new home in the Alps. Despite the property’s relatively remote location, all work was undertaken during the snow filled winter months (no mean feat considering the area received up to 4 metres of snow during this period).

If you are looking for an extensive overhaul to a property in the Chamonix valley, or even small renovations and extensions, the team at Pangea Services are here to help manage and deliver your project on time. Get in touch today and find out how we can deliver your dream home in the mountains.
