Chalet Heidi Zermatt, Switzerland Sleeps 6
What we love
Quite possibly one of the most stylish lofts in the Alps. The designer has used many different materials and textures to create this masterpiece, so why not enjoy his work too?! While your chef is preparing your evening meal, why not enjoy the beautiful views through your floor to ceiling windows?
The Zermatt Loft is a spacious and stylish loft in the Swiss Alps; it combines glass, steel, textured concrete and wood in a unique symphony of fusion architecture created by local star designer Heinz Julen as his private home. The chalet is accessed through a two minute walk from the top of the Omnia Hotel lifts, for which guests will have a special key. The village end of the lift is in the main street of Zermatt, close to the church. Its location perched high on a hill gives it a spectacular bird’s nest views of the Mischabel mountains and the village.
The sense of space, light and being one with nature that the Loft provides is totally unique; there are no barriers between the nature outside and the home space inside. On the two sides overlooking the village, the walls consist of floor to ceiling glass with six metre high French windows leading to a large terrace. A white electric exterior curtain that can wrap itself around all that glass if need be. The ceiling is supported by seven columns, while the glass walls have an inset fireplace and several alcoves.
The main loft living area has a suspended and illuminated table which can be raised and lowered from coffee table, to dining table, to ceiling height; the latter creating a large party space. In one corner you can play on a baby grand Steinway piano, while in another you can sink into a large sofa and gaze simultaneously at the stunning view over the village and at the crackling fireplace set into the glass wall. All the exquisite furniture in the Loft is designed by Heinz Julen, including two desks, reclining armchairs, a wall of art, and a signature chandelier. From this level a metal staircase leads up to the mezzanine, which has another sofa chill-out area with TV; a Jacuzzi bath, a cosy dining alcove and a bar area, all bathed in subtle inset lighting.
The three double bedrooms are split across the three floors of the Loft. The two side bedrooms, one located above the other, have magnificent village views; the private master bedroom has a restricted view but more space, providing ample room for a sofa, a walk-in wardrobe and a TV set into a glass window.
The Loft provides all modern comforts such as a large TV with DVD and cable, sound system, free wireless broadband internet access, a well appointed kitchen and a sauna. Numerous balconies and terraces enhance the overwhelming feeling of living ‘in nature’, in style and in ultimate luxury.
Very interesting mix of wood, concrete and steel elements in the design of the house and its interior. Food and drink just excellent: a great breakfast, Fresh juices, tasty bread, porridge, eggs...
