Le Grand Chalet De Moniatis – Organic Architecture in a Modern Urban Environment
Our new project, Le Grand Chalet De Moniatis, stands out prominently against the backdrop of unfolded mass multi-storey buildings. This luxury house, in the traditional Alpine style, will be located on 18,000 square meters of picturesque slopes of Troodos, surrounded by perennial pines. Only 20-25 minutes drive from Limassol, you will splendidly find yourself surrounded by a noble calm and secluded silence! Clean and cool mountain air and coniferous flavours are an indispensable bonus to other advantages of this unique project.
The chalet style is a luxury of natural materials, the lack of which we have become especially acute of in recent years. They are replaced by: tile instead of natural stone, concrete and metal instead of timber, plastic, polyamide, acrylic, polyurethane … The abundance of artificial materials makes us re-evaluate the virtues of nature’s gifts and take them as real wealth.
Many celebrities – for example, Kevin Klein and Bill Gates, also choose the style of the chalet or its interpretation. Often, they themselves participate in the creation and implementation of such projects, as did Giorgio Armani with his famous “House of the White Bear”.
Thanks to the atmosphere of coziness, tranquillity and unity with nature, the chalet style, originating in the houses of farmers and Alpine shepherds, gradually turns into one of the most popular and luxurious architectural and design solutions.
Le Grand Chalet De Moniatis has a covered area for the comfortable stay of a large family – 800 sq. m. The chalet has five bedrooms with bathrooms and dressing rooms, a study, a living-dining room with double light and a massive fireplace, a spacious kitchen, a maid’s room, technical rooms, a spa with a gym and a home theatre.
Paying tribute to the traditional Alpine architecture, the chalet has a massive gable roof with a large outflow and panoramic glazing of the façade; a wonderful springboard for admiring the pine landscapes in a comfortable home environment. A spacious veranda with wooden flooring is a harmonious continuation of the house. There is a street fireplace, which not only carries a style load, but also allows the owners to keep warm on cool evenings. Trying not to change the original natural relief, a neatly entered two-level pool was added to the landscape.
You can drive up to the chalet by asphalt road. In addition to the garage for two cars, there are also open parking spaces. Thanks to the natural difference in heights, the entrance to the house is hidden from curious looks, but when you have just come down to the living room, you have an opportunity to assess the fullness and scope of the project.
The lower level of the chalet repeats the form of the landscape and this layered level not only makes the interiors more original, but also allows you to effectively maximise space without clutter.
The dominant material in the decoration of all rooms is a tree. However, in order not to overload the premises and not to tear ourselves away from reality, the modernity of the project is also emphasized, using glass partitions, metal and glass constructions and other topical techniques in the interiors. The original creator’s signature piece is a weightless staircase made of glass. The walls are dominated by natural wood and stone, a board or plank panels and textured plaster. The central place in the living room is a fireplace; massive and lined with rough stone, which is the main compositional centre of the two-room hall.
Le Grand Chalet De Moniatis is conceived as a solid and comfortable home for permanent or temporary residence. The combination of simplicity and coarse forms, with elements in the hi-tech style, soft natural fabrics and fluffy carpets, will undoubtedly make this chalet the most desired place of stay for its owners. The project is commercial and open for co-investment or sale.
