The Architecture of Méribel: Pioneering Architects

A fine example of development in harmony with the mountains, Méribel has managed to retain its character. From the birth of the resort, the construction of the early chalets respected the Savoyard tradition - stone walls, wood, pitched granite roofs and simple, clean lines. These trends still influence the architecture of 2020. 


It's a little known fact that the resort came into being thanks to a Scotsman! Major Peter Lindsay, a passionate skier, was fascinated by Parisian architects and their non-invasive vision of the built environment. Born of a profound respect for nature, Méribel has become a chalet resort par excellence, where each structure is perfectly integrated into the alpine environment.
