  • Working in Alps - since 2003 with an engineering business since 2007 (all French registered) planning / architecture / project management

Alpine design was setup due to a clear lack of reliable and affordable architectural and planning services when first working on our own house.

Based in Samoens, we have clients throughout the grand massif, portes du soleil and chamonix valley. We are expanding and helping clients further afield all the time.
