The Heinz Julen Loft is a spectacular Manhattan style loft in Zermatt, Switzerland. The wooden chalet was built in the Swiss Alps, combining floor to ceiling glass windows, steel, textured concrete and wood in a unique style of architecture by designer Heinz Julen. The 3,229 square foot (300 square meters) loft was Heinz’s private home where he hosted many rock-star parties and is now available as a luxury catered vacation rental sleeping up to six people. Close to the Omnia Hotel lifts and the heart of Zermatt village, this is the perfect ski retreat.
The main loft living area has a suspended and illuminated table which can be raised and lowered from coffee table, to dining table, to ceiling height; the latter creating a large party space. 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.
From this level a metal staircase leads up to the mezzanine, with a chill-out area, free standing Jacuzzi bath, cozy dining alcove, a kitchen and cantilevered bar area. As you walk on this floor you will notice that the floating feeling it creates is due to it being made entirely of opaque glass with subtle inset lighting.
Overlooking the main loft area, there are two double en-suite bedrooms, one above the other. The third, master bedroom is very private with its own landing, featuring a free-standing bath with wood-slatted massage cover, an island bed on a rotating floor, his and her bedroom sinks, a separate shower room and water closet, a walk-in wardrobe, a sofa, and a TV set into the glass window.
This fabulous loft retreat in the Swiss Alps can be all yours, with rates from $483 – 1,360 per person, per night, from here.
