From conception to creation

15 Dec 2016

We are so excited that Ferme de Moudon has now become part of The Boutique Chalet Company’s Exclusive Collection. It remains one of the most iconic luxury ski chalets of our time, a chalet that was created before our very eyes, onscreen, as part of the Grand Designs Series. It is for this reason that we think Ferme de Moudon and it’s journey from concept to creation represents so much more than just another luxury ski chalet and warrants it’s own story being told…

the story of ferme de moudon

the journey …

From the beginning, Ferme de Moudon represented a journey. It represented an adventure. It represented the decision to set out and try and create something different, to realise a long cherished dream.

It was a journey that broke convention, broke the mould of what had been done before. It was a journey of highs, of lows, of struggle and self-doubt. But it was also a journey of success.

the beginning

In honour of this we have created a series of short films about Ferme de Moudon, starting at the beginning, with one family’s simple dream … to build a chalet in the French Alps.

If you’ve forgotten the story so far, you can catch up and watch the original Grand Designs episode below and see where it all began.
