All conceivable comfort, luxury and a spectacular setting were the ideas which triggered the design for the Heinz Julen Loft, a modern retreat in Zermatt, Switzerland. Envisioned by local designer Heinz Julen, the unconventional apartment is a mix of steel, textured concrete, wood and large expanses of glass, the result being that of a typical Manhattan loft.
The most spectacular aspect of the retreat is probably its floor to ceiling windows measuring a jaw-dropping height of six meters (nineteen feet) and allowing unobstructed views of the surroundings. According to the official description of the project, there were a few elements integrated in the living area worth emphasizing: the suspended illuminated table which can be raised and lowered as required or lifted completely out of the way to to ceiling height, the grand Steinway piano in one corner and a large sofa in front of the fireplace, set into one of the glass walls. Theloft is structured on two levels, and access is provided via an elevator.
