❛ THE LITTLE STORY ❜
It is in this very old construction of more than a century that this curious universe was created, built at the end of the 1870s by M. Burnoud, a Parisian who came to settle in the village of Montriond with his wife named this property Chalet Bel-Air
A place near the road inviting exchange and sharing, a meeting place where the villagers used to meet after working in the fields, thus, this place naturally turned into a Bar and a dancing and singing place when the bells rang at the end of the war in 1918.
This wonderful house was redesigned under the influence of « New-Brutalism
» by René Faublée
in the 60s
, also author of the Notre-Dame-des-Prisonniers
chapel in Avoriaz
is born in 1906 and he’s grew up during the 1920s and was influenced by the artistic atmosphere of the time. Key artistic innovations that had been established in the earlier part of the 20th century continued to be worked on during the 1920s and 1930s. At this time the careers of many influential and pioneering artists began to flourish, yet at the same time there was an atmosphere of consideration and solemnity following the horrors of the First World War. Significant shifts in politics were happening worldwide, and Marxism took a strong grip as an ideology within artist groups and communities. The leading focus for art at the time was on Freudian theory and the human subconscious, and these ideas were best represented by artists including Salvador Dali, Giorgio de Chirico, Andre Breton, Rene Magritte and Paul Delvaux, whilst in Paris, artists such as Brancusi, Modigliani and Soutine established methods of art which were expressive and dynamic.
Chalet Bel Air
was transformed into a Chalet de la Colonie du XIV°
adapted to receive many more people, to offer mountain holidays to many children, organized by the XIV° arrondissement of Paris, a massive structure, with heavy and raw materials and linear effects, fitted out at that time for a summer camp from the XIV arrondissement of Paris, which became finally Le Chalet du XVI°!
Many children of the 60s have engraved memories of their first skiing trips in Montriond on this place.
It was also the beginning of tourism in the village and the surrounding, notably as the start of the famous Fantastic Festival of Avoriaz
where the stars come to recharge their batteries under a large coat and large sunglasses.
Many of the villagers and shepherds traded their sickles for a pair of poles and began to teach skiing.
