The chalet is based on an old Valais house dating from the 1940s, which Heinz has modernised 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 5 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 cosy atmosphere.
At the press of a button the roof opens and the whirlpool 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.
Naturally all the furniture and furnishings have been developed and manufactured in the Heinz Julen studio in Zermatt. The chalet is moreover equipped with contemporary art from Zermatt’s art rooms.
