Then, the second is the pride of extending the project of his grandfather.

Located in Chamonix Mont Blanc, France, the house features a remarkably large picture window that looks over the surrounding area. Once insides, the living areas such as living room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom designed delicately and meticulously.

The Aperture House Gallery:

Description: The project is a meeting, a consultation between architect and client; a client himself involved in construction and holding a vigorous viewpoint. The latter is committed from the start to being the ideal client, and he endeavors to demonstrate his availability, reliability, investment and, of course, his high standards. It was a robust consultation with sustained commitments
