Église Notre-Dame des Alpes

Located in the neighborhood of Le Fayet in the commune de Saint-Gervais-les-Bains (Haute-Savoie) and designed by Maurice Novarina, this church is representative of European Regional Modernism, an aesthetic that advocated for regional styles that reflected modernist principles, rather than a more standardized style of architectural Modernity. Examples of integration into the local landscape include the choice of materials such as locally sourced oak and granite, as well as the low, chalet-style roof. The building was completed in 1938.
