Chalet Kuma in Chamonix
Welcome to Haag&Baquet Architects:
Created in 2015, Haag&Baquet is an architecture, design & engineering agency located at the foot of the majestic Mont-Blanc, in Sallanches. Our multilingual team expresses itself through different architectural projects, for both a local and international clientele. We want our clients to participate in the realisation of their project, right from the initial sketches up to the final product.
In order to accompany you to the best of our ability in the realisation your project, we have THREE main watchwords:
TO DARE: our bold style means that we are present today in completely different projects, from a simple house design to huge hotel complexes in France and abroad. And to that boldness, we add our desire to tackle new challenges, be it environmental, architectural or simply renovation. It is this experience that allows us to accompany you throughout your project and to realise it.
TO SURPRISE: our aim is it is to adapt, to organise and to go above and beyond, in order to bring to fruition your project. Be that a new build or a renovation project, our team will do everything possible to successfully complete our assignment.
TO ACHIEVE: our architecture firm is composed of several services, namely: architecture & design, engineering fluid, building economics and follow-up site monitoring. These combined services allow us to accompany you throughout the entirety of your project.
Respect for the environment
In our respect for the environment, our company devotes itself mainly to renovation projects in Haute-Savoie that are aimed at reducing man’s impact on the environment.
Haag&Baquet is doing its utmost to comply with the 2020 thermal regulations. This regulation only concerns new builds, and it aims to minimise as much as possible the energy expenditure of households, with the aim that each household produces more energy than it consumes (= a positive energy building).
Certainly, the new energy regulation of 2020 will be more expensive, but in the long term it will help to reduce your energy bill. And, moreover, you will have the satisfaction in knowing that you are contributing to the battle against global climate warming.
With regards to old buildings, Haag&Baquet offers you the possibility of renovating your building, while at the same time reducing your energy costs.
A multilingual team
One of the main strengths of Haag&Baquet lies in our cultural diversity. Our team consists of 8 different nationalities – German, Italian, English, Dominican, Swiss, American, Spanish and French (with all the nuances of the different regions and départements represented within the team: Alsace, Brittany, and – of course – Haute-Savoie).
Having a multinational and multilingual team allows us to exchange our different cultures and visions of architecture, in order to be more receptive and open to the world. It is this openness that allows us to practise worldwide, and to understand and satisfy our clients to the utmost.
A particular expertise
Haag&Baquet is first of all a team, a real team. This means having a common work ethic and a collective concept of architectural design; this is a quality rare enough to be mentioned! We have put into place a rigorous and structured approach to how we work and the tools we use internally, as well as with our external partners.
Located in Sallanches, in the heart of the Pays du Mont-Blanc, Haag&Baquet works in areas of outstanding beauty. Most of our projects are carried out in the Chamonix Valley, and also in Saint-Gervais-Mont-Blanc, Megève, Combloux, Passy and Sallanches. Thanks to our international mindset, our company attracts a very international clientele, one that is very present in this touristic region. Our proximity to the Swiss border also allows our company to develop in the Geneva and Valais areas
