Swiss Chalet Style and The Dragon Style

The Swiss Chalet Style and The Dragon Style



The Swiss Chalet Style

was a form of architecture originally inspired by the chalets of Switzerland and the Alpine region.
Buildings of this style are usually wooden and have richly decorated balconies and carved ornaments.
It spread over Germany, Austria-Hungary and Scandinavia during the Belle …poque era.

The Dragon Style

is related to the former, and originated in Norway in the second half of the 19th century.
The style was an expression of national romanticism and was inspired
by viking and medieval architecture of Scandinavia.


This thread is for posting images of both styles, so I'll start with an example of each.

Swiss chalet style is the English name of the architectural style that is inspired by those chalets. It was popular in the Nordics among other places during the turn of the 20th century. Here in Norway it is known as Sveitserstil.

My remark was not useless, it allowed me to discover a style I did not know. Thank you Galro.
