4* Hotel Alpenhof

Zermatt, Switzerland

The internationally well-established hotel, successfully managed over many years, was transferred into the Tradition Julen Zermatt Group subsequent to a generational transition. 62 rooms and suites were concerned by a complete renovation during the initial construction phase. The young hosts entrusted us with the responsibility of developing a holistic concept for the famous chalet.

Working closely with the client, we spent an extended period of time exploring the families farming background to help establish the hotel as a place of cultural significance. Incorporating a variety of natural raw materials from the region, including oak wood masonry and wood timbers from local artisans, our design gathers inspiration from the farming background, as visible in the design of the new guestrooms. The new design places innovative emphasis on an elegant and contemporary restyling of the various rooms, incorporating the Alps’ rural features and measuring up to international, high standards.
