Shell shaped structures
Gerard Grandval, a French architect, designed these shell-shaped structures in the 1960s.
Futuristic appearance
The chalets are known for their distinctive shell-like roofs, which give them a futuristic and almost otherworldly appearance.
Vacation Homes
The Shell Chalets were primarily built as vacation homes, and they gained popularity for their innovative and unconventional design.
Functional purpose
The curved roofs not only contribute to the aesthetic appeal but also serve a functional purpose by providing shade and protection.
Testament to Grandval's creativity
While not as well-known as some other architectural wonders, the Shell Chalets are a testament to Grandval's creativity and willingness to push the boundaries of traditional design.
