Natural consistency: Les Chalets Lara & Louise at Lake Forggensee give a new interpretation to the archetype of the traditional barn – with a focus on local wood, alpine views and sunbathing time in the pergolas.
In the middle of the picturesque hilly landscape of the East Allgäu, not far from Füssen and King Ludwig’s castles, lies the small village of Rieden, with the majestic Ammergebirge mountains rising up in front of it. At 814 metres above sea level, Les Chalets Lara & Louise occupy a box seat in this scenic setting. In order to preserve the historical identity of the village, the semi-detached house was built in the style of a typical East Allgäu barn with a rough-sawn, greying spruce façade.
The two separate holiday chalets face east and west, so that guests’ privacy is guaranteed. In homage to the old farmhouses, the roof protrusion that once protected against sun, rain and snow has been extended and functions as a covering for the entrances and loggias. The horizontal round timbers between the hanging squared timbers are also reminiscent of the pergolas of historic farmsteads.
Both Lara and Louise are spread over three floors: while there are two bedrooms with bathrooms on the ground floor, the living areas of the two chalets are located on the upper floor and offer guests a fantastic mountain view all day long. The kitchen, dining room and living room are spread over the entire floor and are only structured by the centrally positioned loggia, which visually extends the dining table to the outside. A cantilevered staircase leads to the top floor, where a further bedroom with loggia awaits. Both units are generously sized and furnished to a high standard. Louise also has an open fireplace suspended from the ceiling in the living room and a free-standing bathtub on the top floor.
The timber construction made from local spruce not only serves as a load-bearing element, but also defines the interior. All fixtures, doors, floors and the custom-designed furniture are made entirely of local wood.
