Just H Architects expansion and development in the Portes du Soleil and beyond
Just H Architects France are now in their third year of practice. The team has grown to include Sharon Scott, who joins Paul Harrison, the founding director with 25 years in the industry, in the managing of the practice. Having lived in the area for over twenty years, working in property for most of that time, with fluent French, she looks after the administrative part of the business. Just H has also been excited to accommodate interns from Lausanne university and the UK, who have provided great support to the team.The French office is located in Saint Jean d’Aulps, in the Haute Savoie, just a few kilometres from Morzine and in the very heart of the Portes de Soleil ski area. In the past couple of years, Just H has worked on projects not just in the Morzine valley, but also in the Samoens and Abondance valleys. The area is a hugely popular area with the English and Dutch market in particular, with prices below those of the Three valleys. Land is still available for new builds with prices ranging from 80 000 euros to 450 000 euros for a constructable plot. There are also a large range of traditional farmhouses ready for renovation, providing great Savoyard charm and authenticity. The rental market is booming and provides flexibility for annual, seasonal or weekly rentals.The climate and geography also make it an amazing all year round location for potential investors, with Lake Geneva just 20 minutes away from Morzine.
The projects that Just H have been involved in, have ranged from small extensions and renovations to full scale farmhouse conversions and new build chalets and small apartment buildings. Just H offers full service and support for any type of project. We can provide preliminary studies, full planning applications, construction drawings, full project management and interior design. We can even advise you on your choice of land or property purchase.We have also established serious and close partnerships with local experts. These include ground study experts, surveyors and structural engineers. We can put you in contact with the very best of local artisans, from chalet constructors to independent tradesmen. Just H prides itself on it’s close working relationship with the local councils and town planners, which leads to a smooth planning process and ease of communication.
