LE MANEJ is a new building located in Courchevel 1850 above the Rue des Clarines and facing east. This sumptuous location offers a wide panorama of the valley and the remarkable neighbouring peaks such as the Dent du Villard or the Grand Bec, while providing access to the ski area.
This project is the successor to the former Les Mélèzes condominium, revealing the qualities of the site through an architecture that is in keeping with the rich history of this pioneering resort created in 1946. The respect of its heritage induces the subtlety of its balance mixing alpine memory and contemporary touches specific to this territory of traditions and innovations.
Its style is supported by the skill of the craftsmen who cut local stone, use traditional roofing frameworks and use slate roofing. The authenticity and naturalness of these materials are punctuated by key elements such as the four generous Corten steel bow windows framing the landscape and the circular turret marking the upper entrance to the building.
The treatment of the railings is nuanced by a play of transparency, ranging from the finesse of a metal bar to the intimacy of openwork planks, contributing to its sensory experience.
The main facade is punctuated by large bay windows opening onto spacious balconies offering an unobstructed view from all levels.
