This spectacular apartment is a stunning Manhattan style loft set in a wooden chalet in the Swiss Alps. At 300m2, it is a spacious apartment combining acres of glass, steel, textured concrete and wood in a unique fusion of architecture created by local designer Heinz Julen. The Loft was Heinz’s private home, where he hosted many rock-star parties.
Access is a 2 minute walk from the top of the Omnia Hotel lifts, for which you will have a special key. The village end of this lift delivers you right into the heart of Zermatt, in the main street close to the church.
With floor to ceiling glass on the two sides overlooking the village, light floods into the loft. A large terrace is accessed through 6 metre high French windows, and in the evening you can take advantage of the electric exterior curtain that can wrap itself around the glass for a little more privacy. The ceiling is supported by seven columns, while the glass walls have an inset fireplace and three alcoves.
The main loft living area features a suspended and illuminated table that can be raised and lowered depending on the height you wish. From coffee table to dining table or ceiling height to give a larger open space, this embodies both convenience and fantastic style. 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.
The apartment sleeps 6 in three double bedrooms, each with a private bathroom.
Both levels of the loft are served by a private lift, and all guests of the Heinz Julen Loft have half-price access between 1 pm and 5 pm to the Backstage Hotel Genesis Spa.
This apartment can be booked together with the Heinz Julen Penthouse in the same building, to sleep 14 guests. It can be taken on a catered or self-catered basis.
