Olivier is an architect and dedicates two days of his week to his project at Anoko Lodge, where he restored 6 ruins of agricultural buildings into modern sustainable mountain huts. With his approach, he’s preserving the traditions of the Valais and encouraging slow tourism. Olivier spent his childhood in the mountains, e.g. collecting mushrooms with his grandfather. This was his first connection to nature and sustainability. Years later he refound his passion and as an architect experiments with materials and energy-saving technologies. ‘Sustainability does not necessarily mean less comfort’, he says. Sometimes it’s about the little things that can have a great impact, for example keeping the temperature of the huts at 20-21° depending on the season.
