designing beautiful buildings you will love living in
who we are
our approach
AlpStudio is an architecture practice in Samoëns in the French Alps. Established by Tom Searby and Andy Wilson, our philosophy is to create imaginative yet practical spaces. 

Tom has been practising as an Architect since 2009 and Andy has been a designer and building contractor for 25 years.

We love and embrace mountain lifestyle and understand that your chalet is a place to begin your outdoor adventures, and also a home to retreat to at the end of the day. 

​We believe that our combined experience in architecture, design, visualisation, project management and construction in the UK and in France means that we are perfectly placed to help you achieve your vision. 

We work on projects across the region, visit our map page to see areas we cover.
Our clients are at the heart of our work. We listen to your alpine dreams, and with you, we make it a reality.
 
Our work is creative yet respectful of local Savoyarde architecture, craft, material and construction. 
 
Our projects are thoughtful, innovative, and refined in their detail. ​​We believe great architecture is distilled in the details and should simplify not just the construction process but also the spaces they define.


We want to help you create a home that blends and enchances the beautiful alpine landscape around it. A place that makes you love waking up there, every day. 

​Whether you are considering a partial or complete renovation, extension, or new chalet we hope you will choose AlpStudio.
