Residential / S House - Chamonix, 2009
«Lionel's involvement with our renovation and rebuild project lasted 2 years. Throughout this time his professional approach to the project, mixed with his boundless enthusiasm and energy, helped to forge a working client-architect relationship that was never complicated,R.S.
and always a pleasure to participate in.
More than anything else, Lionel's design eye is second to none. The family home that he has built for us continues to wow all friends and family who come to stay, as well as most passers-by at the end of the road!
His modern vision of the traditional chalet allows his buildings a unique feel within the Chamonix valley.
Working for a foreign client, another vital asset for Lionel is his relationship with local contractors and craftsmen. The respect that the contractors have for Lionel is clear, and as such all build and snagging issues were resolved swiftly and painlessly.
It is rare that the client-architect relationship can remain uncomplicated throughout a major project, but this has more than been the case with Lionel.»
