Chamonix Ski Chalet
Chamonix Ski Chalet
Led from London, our involvement formed an integral part of this extraordinary build of a beautiful Chamonix chalet undertaken over 12 months, with our team on site for many weeks.
Created by respected interior designer Nicky Dobree, this stunning property afforded expansive living spaces, six bedrooms, a games room, a 14-seat dedicated cinema, sauna and treatment room. The specification was exacting and that was not missed on the audio visual, cinema and lighting systems Lamont designed and installed. The project was a closely aligned four-way collaboration between Dobree, the contractor, ourselves and the client who engaged on every detail of the project, in particular the music and cinema systems.
Lamont designed a complete acoustic treatment for the subterranean cinema – analysed and tested rigorously to achieve the perfect sound as well as picture. To complete the experience, each bespoke leather cinema seat was individually designed from a specialist American company. Every chair was fully automated and adjustable to enable the most comfortable position.
Working closely with the lighting designer Alex Stileman, Lamont collaborated by installing a Lutron-controlled lighting system throughout the chalet and, with British manufacturer Meridian Audio, we developed a bespoke control program for sourcing streamed music and film content that was specifically written for our client.
Being a vinyl junkie, our client’s collection of classic jazz recordings was extensive – he exclaimed with great pleasure that his first weekend stay at the chalet was celebrated with Miles Davis on the record player and a fine bottle of French wine.
Some projects are without comparison, and none epitomises this more than an apartment in Holland Park, previously used as a studio by a renowned British painter.
From the outside, this picture-perfect 18th century, Grade II listed house had a mature garden that suggested it might have looked the same for the last 150 years.
