Contemporary yet cozy weekend hideaway in Swiss Alps: Chalet Gstaad

Chalet Gstaad-Amaldi Neder Architectes-01-1 Kindesign

Chalet Gstaad is a stunning private holiday chalet in the Swiss Alps designed by Laurence Rouveure of Ardesia Design in collaboration with Amaldi Neder Architects. The objective of this weekend hideaway was to create a warm, cozy atmosphere using a natural palette of neutral colors and soft textures such as linen and wool. The drive of the design was towards pure and clean lines with a sense of lightness and neutral colors. The designer concentrated on the design of pure and clean lines of the 4,090 square feet (380 square meters) lodge and carefully selected a palette of natural materials.

The walls of this chalet are covered in Australian rough-sawn timber and the floor is made of Danish fir planks of up to 15 meters long. In the bedrooms, wool and cashmere fabric have been mounted instead of a headboard to break up the all-wood appearance. The bathrooms are plastered in marmorino (or tadelakt) to create contrast to the wood while keeping to the natural theme. The furniture is a mix of new, contemporary, furniture, traditional pieces and eclectic finds sourced from all over Europe.

Avoiding a conventional layout, Laurence divided the 5 bedroom-bathrooms suites between the basement and the ground floor and dedicated the top floor with its huge rooftop apex to socializing and entertaining.

The walls throughout the house are covered by panels of rough sawn Austrian timber that was slightly burnt, brushed, and braised. Flooring is made up of wide Danish planks from Dinesen of lye and white soap finish fir that measure up to 16 meters long.

A palette of neutral and natural colours is to be found throughout the all house, including grey tadelakt and white Turkish limestone in the bathrooms. The natural material of tadelakt, usually used in warm places, was brought to this mountain interior and mixed with the roughness of the wood.

The brushed stainless steel kitchen with its island countertop and sink in stone Pietra del Cardosa gives a cool and industrial feel, which contrasts with the timber surroundings of the chalet.
