The chalet is based on an old Valais house dating from the 1940s, which architect Heinz Julen has modernized and extended by two storeys in line with the chalet nature of the building.
This extension has been constructed exclusively from local larch and designed to include large areas of glass, providing a spectacular 360-degree panoramic view over the village and the Matterhorn. The chalet has five double bedrooms, one of them containing a high sleeper and thus an extra bed, making it ideal for an additional child.
The roof structure has open gables, and provides an open living, dining and kitchen space, with the fireplace giving the place a cozy atmosphere.
The property has a spectacular whirlpool which raises up on an extending arm above the chalet roof – a fascinating small feat of engineering that is probably unique among its kind worldwide. The pool accommodates up to six people. At the press of a button the roof opens and the pool is hydraulically lifted above the roof! The view from above the chalet is truly breathtaking, making the experience unlike any other you can find in Zermatt.
The bedrooms are spread over the two floors below the lounge and dining area. The chalet has a lower floor which has a small private home cinema and games room and is equipped with a workstation, WC and shower. Next door is the ski room with heated ski boot racks. All these rooms have access to a private lift.
All the furniture and furnishings have been developed and manufactured by the local artist and architect Heinz Julen here in Zermatt. The chalet is moreover equipped with contemporary art from Zermatt’s art rooms. Here Heinz focuses on coziness and tradition, blended with a modern-day flair, in an impressive manner, making you instantly feel at home.
