WOM Chalet in Tignes France

Locat­ed in Tignes France, WOM Resort is an excit­ing and inno­v­a­tive approach to estab­lish a new lux­u­ry alpine sport­ing facil­i­ty and well­ness retreat as part the well-known ski vil­lage in the Alps. Devel­oped by acclaimed ath­lete Guer­lain Chicher­it, WOM is a com­pre­hen­sive resort includ­ing a 5‑star hotel, 17 lux­u­ry apart­ments and 13 bespoke chalets accom­pa­nied by world-class ameni­ties. In har­mo­ny with the sur­round­ing nat­ur­al envi­ron­ment as well as the built envi­ron­ment, the con­tem­po­rary archi­tec­ture draws on the her­itage ver­nac­u­lar of the region and incor­po­rates pro­gres­sive sus­tain­abil­i­ty strategies.

As part of the bespoke chalet offer­ing, WOM has invit­ed 13 design­ers from around the globe, includ­ing Splin­ter Soci­ety to devel­op a dis­tinct approach for each, rep­re­sent­ing the firm’s unique inte­ri­or design aesthetic. 

Embrac­ing a con­cep­tu­al archi­tec­tur­al response, the Splin­ter Soci­ety designed chalet explores the mul­ti­fac­eted notion of twin peaks’. This approach sets the foun­da­tions of the project as a response to the nat­ur­al envi­ron­ment typ­i­fied by jagged stone peaks. Large boul­ders pen­e­trate the inte­ri­ors as though they were gran­ite out­crops from the moun­tain­side. Nat­ur­al tim­ber, logs and rough sawn boards line the ceil­ings and walls.

To coun­ter­act the nat­ur­al ele­ments, the soft­er inte­ri­or ele­ments explore a more the­atri­cal inter­pre­ta­tion of the ski town set­ting, par­tic­u­lar­ly inspired by the icon­ic Twin Peaks tele­vi­sion series. Rich green fea­tures includ­ing a regal vel­vet cur­tain and glazed ceram­ic tile add a glam­ours take on a misty forest.

As the sole Aus­tralian firm involved in the project, Splin­ter Soci­ety also sought to link the two alpine regions, by delib­er­ate­ly incor­po­rat­ing var­i­ous Aus­tralian design­ers in the inte­ri­or scheme. Light fit­tings by Christo­pher Boots, Ross Gar­dam and Alex Earl build on the ele­ment of min­er­al­i­ty while fur­nish­ings by Marc Tuck­ey add to the nat­ur­al tim­ber through the inte­ri­or. An art­work by indige­nous artist Min­nie Pwer­le is woven into the rug and Aus­tralian artists are dis­played on the walls.
