The Location
About Avoriaz
Reflective architecture: a village in perfect harmony with the mountains and environment
• A design of striking shapes and forms with obliques, pyramids, and setback levels, clad in red cedar.
• Inside, port-holes, covered open areas, balconies and terraces which open out onto the landscape.
