Restoration and Enhancement of the Luxury Resort. Stone and wood in the Swiss Alps

In the heart of one of the oldest Walser colonies in the Valais, the meticulous design by architect Iwan Kiechler has resulted in a renovation that sets new standards in quality, finish and design of the luxury resort

The project involves the renovation of an old building located in a scenic area on the Hohnegg plateau, in Sass Fee, an exclusive tourist resort in the Swiss Alps

The entire structure was made of old wood while "murogeopietra", an excellent blend of reconstructed stone and mortar, was the focal point of the cladding. The continuous interweaving of stone and wood that brings back authenticity to the atmosphere of the Swiss chalet has characterized the traditional external facades and interior spaces
