Chamonix-based practice chevallier architectes has completed the renovation and extension of a self-built mountain guide’s house in the french alps. after the residence was acquired by new owners, the dwelling was required to provide its occupants with more light and better views. surrounded by natural rock faces, ‘chalet solelyâ’ appears as a fortress, nestled into the rugged terrain.
