Chalet Des Druns, Chamonix.

This vast chalet of 700m2 was constructed for luxurious holiday rentals and combines contemporary French Alpine architecture and design with the practical necessities for weekly high-end rentals for both summer and winter. Le Chalet des Drus has a sumptuous indoor swimming pool and spa area which is very rare to be found in Chamonix. There is also a gym, hot tub, hammam and cinema room – this chalet offers 5-star accommodation from top to toe! The use of these traditional materials contrasts beautifully with the modern design features such as the glass stairway and slate dining table using iron legs from the workshop of Mr Eiffel, (architect of the Eiffel Tower). This creates a stunning harmony respecting traditional building materials, and techniques with modern design features and technology.

Torre di Moravola, medieval modernism.

Torre di Moravola is a 12th C retreat created from a medieval watchtower situated on a mountainside overlooking the Carpini valley in Umbria, Italy.

Outbuildings, gardens, terraces and a 25 metre infinity pool are aligned on an axis with the tower to maximise the dramatic 360 degree views over secluded valleys, unchanged for centuries, giving the sensation of being totally removed from the modern world.

Palazzo barocco, Positano, Italy.

This stunning Baroque style Palace is one of a kind. It is located high in Positano, about 10 – 15 minutes walk up from the town and beach and has the most impressive views over the town, the typical Amalfi coastline and the Mediteranean sea. Its uphill position and property location makes it difficult to reach and is not advisable for guests with limited mobility. This palace is for rent by Leo Trippi Luxury Travel.

Vaucluse House by Bruce Stafford Architects.

Vaucluse House by Bruce Stafford Architects is situated on a narrow site with waterfront at one short end and parkland along the long northerly side. The prime design generator was to frame the various view opportunities from the moment one arrived off the street, by creating a range of different spaces, all connected to a central vertical and horizontal circulation spine on the long axis of the site. This resulted in a series of courtyards and volumetric experiences until arriving at the edge of the infinity pool. The courtyard and double volume living area allow other spaces to ‘borrow’ views by looking through them. The use of natural, textural finishes was core to the design brief, the clients wanting a warm, earthy aesthetic. Rich stone elements such as backlit Onyx and dry stacked quartz stone walls provide highlights in the material palette.
