One of the most notable holiday homes in Zermatt, this award winning residence combines the virtuoso vision of Swiss architect Heinz Julen with the naturally spellbinding scenery of the iconic Matterhorn and the Alps. We love the bold conceptual design, the towering scale and the understated and elegant refinement. There’s even a Steinway should the muse inspire you!
Selected by the Times as one of the “20 Coolest Chalets in the Alps” for two years in a row, this commanding and glamorous loft designed by architect and local luminary Heinz Julen combines the rustic aesthetics of the Alps with sleek urban sensibilities.
A multidisciplinary artist whose projects are deeply identified with his origins and family history in the region, Zermatt is home to an extensive portfolio of his commercial and residential creations. Formerly Julen’s private residence, the home has been host to legendary parties and is an integral part of the local lore.
Composed of epic proportions that still manage to be warm and inviting, the interiors take a familiar context and theme and give them a glamorous urban spin with a strong sense of place. Supported by seven soaring columns, the architectural attributes are bold and expressive and celebrate the scenery with transparent floor to ceiling walls of glass. Using some reclaimed and salvaged materials in a fusion of steel, textured concrete and wood, the effect is sleek and rugged with modern industrial overtones. The open loft configuration features well defined living spaces with comfy sitting areas to sink into around the fireplace and baby grand Steinway. The custom furnishings and art are from Julen’s own furniture shop including jack-in-the-box armchairs, an illuminated table which can be raised and lowered for entertaining, a wall of art, and a signature chandelier.
Both levels of the house are serviced by an elevator or metal staircase that leads to the mezzanine level lounge with a galley kitchen, dining area and cantilevered bar. There are two en-suite bedrooms overlooking the lower living areas, one above the other with a private master suite featuring an island bed on a rotating floor.
An exciting and exceptionally crafted holiday home, this chic chalet’s commanding artistry and luxurious indulgences are a decadent, high altitude treat.
This loft can be rented individually or paired with the penthouse above through Boutique Homes.
Optional concierge services include: private chef with pre-stocking services, pre-arrival and departure assistance, ski passes (VIP key to the Omnia ski lifts are provided to both catered and non-catered guests), ski school, equipment rental, restaurant reservations, wellness & spa services, child care, transfer reservations and transportation. Wifi throughout, cable TV with DVD player, stereo audio system, computer for guest use. Firewood provided.
This former farming town turned international ski and jet set destination and home to the towering and iconic Matterhorn, boasts over 200km of pistes on the Swiss side and is the country’s most popular resort destination. Smaller and somewhat more down to earth than its flashy Alpine neighbors, the luxuries are more understated and geared towards outdoor recreation. The charming village center is blissfully free of cars and has that undeniable all season alpine appeal. The culinary capital of the Alps, there are world class restaurants and posh bars and cafes as well as an entertaining apres ski scene. It’s a two-minute walk to the Omnia lift and under ten minutes to the best of the rest.
Zermatt, Switzerland. Nearest airport: Equidistant to both Geneva International and Malpensa International in Milan (2.5 hrs), there’s also Sion private airport (75 mins).
BEST TIME TO VISIT: You’ll want to snag your spot for world class winter skiing but there is enough snow through Spring and gorgeous alpine landscapes and recreation year round.
