Residence "la cachette" Very rare model CHARLOTTE PERRIAND Coming from a Savoyard family, Charlotte Perriand has always had a passion for mountain and will collaborate on many achievements in the Alps. In 1938/1939, with Pierre Jeanneret and Le Corbusier, she sketched out the project for a winter sports resort at the Col de Vars. She took part in equipping the first hotels in Méribel / les / Allues, a work that she continued after the war, but it was with the design of Les Arcs that she produced her greatest work. This complex operation of town planning and architecture on a virgin site is the one that mobilized him the most and for the longest time, since she devoted twenty years of her life to it, between 1967 and 1989. The resort of Les Arcs is supported by on the principles of the “high mountain recreation area” developed in the pioneering pre-war period to respond to the concerns of an affluent society confronted with new needs arising from mass recreation. "Leisure for all" is the project to which Charlotte Perriand has continued to support.
