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 rustic warmth and the understated and elegant refinement. Check out the beautifully hand crafted furnishings from Julen’s own studio!
Selected by the London Times as one of the “20 Coolest Chalets in the Alps” for two years in a row, this commanding and glamorous tri-level penthouse 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, vying with his loft space below for the prize of Zermatt’s most original property.
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. Outlined by geometric glass roof panels and banks of windows, the architectural attributes are bold and expressive and celebrate the scenery by using transparent barriers.
Using some reclaimed and salvaged materials in a fusion of steel, textured concrete and wood, the effect is sleek and rugged. The open configuration features well defined living spaces with comfy sitting areas to sink into around the fireplace and two terraces overlooking the views. The extensive use of glass roofs offer a unique bird’s eye view of the village and the Mischabel mountains creating bright airy interiors. There are two en-suite bedrooms with high beamed ceilings at each end of this floor while the master bedroom with its free-standing round jacuzzi bath, sloping glass ceilings and stunning views resides on the upper floor.
On the ground floor you will find a smaller fourth en-suite double bedroom with room for a total of eight guests. There’s a private glass-fronted sauna, an exercise room with a treadmill and loungers for relaxing with all three floors accessed by private elevator or stairs. Custom furnishings and art are from Julen’s own furniture shop including jack-in-the-box armchairs and signature chandeliers and fixtures. One of the most exciting and exceptionally crafted holiday homes in Zermatt, this stylish chalet’s commanding artistry and luxurious indulgences are a decadent, high altitude treat.
This Penthouse can be rented individually or paired with the loft below through Boutique Homes.

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 it’s 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.
