Unveiling the latest alpine masterpiece in the heart of Meribel, luxury French hotel group Maison Pariente present Le Coucou – a five-star hotel featuring an enviable ski-in / ski-out location and which has been designed by renowned interior architect Pierre Yovanovitch. What can only be described as an indulgent mountain retreat, the 55-room hotel ‘is a stunning reflection of the designer’s unparalleled approach to regionally-integrated design with a contemporary flair.’
Both the framework of the hotel as well as the detailed interiors, much of which has been custom designed for the project, reflect Yovanovitch’s style to incorporate traditional aesthetics of the environment whilst adding his undeniable contemporary touch and signature playful aesthetic. A project which took over two years to plan and design, the final result is an architectural triumph which is perched on the heights of Belvedere, close to Le Rond-Point des Pistes. Designed to maximise the surrounding views of the alps, ‘Le Coucou is not only a luxury winter resort, but a marvel of design.’
Central to the hotel is its interior design, which features rich colours and patterned floor coverings to bring warmth and charm within each pocket. Understated elegance meets traditional alpine style in each room to evoke bespoke elegance throughout. Custom wallpaper and lighting adorn each room, and further bespoke elements including over 160 artworks selected personally by Yovanovitch specifically for the hotel complete a truly surreal and indulgent getaway. The clever mix of playful flair with sophistication has been brilliantly achieved to present the first design-led hotel of its kind. Complete with an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, sauna, state-of-the-art gym and two restaurants, there’s almost no reason to venture out into the cold when staying at Yovanovitch’s latest masterpiece.
Founding the Paris-based design atelier in 2001 after a successful career in menswear design, Pierre Yovanovitch followed his passion for architecture and interior design to become one of the most renowned in the business. Known for his signature Haute Couture style that beautifully blends artistic elements, architectural detailing and vintage aspects together, Yovanovitch is also known for his fondness of vintage Scandinavian and American design which he couples with his personal bespoke creations. Bravo.
