Designing hotels is an exciting task! I believe that most successful hotels usually place guests into their local culture with the design. Take a look at this hotel in Switzerland and let me know what you think about it.
Cervo is a timber-framed hotel located on the slopes above Zermatt, Switzerland’s most famous alpine resort. Guests can ski right up to the entrance where they’re greeted by a small, almost private doorway which leads them into a cozy sanctuary.
When the guests step inside, the smell and feel of the warm wood starts to soothe them. And as they wander further into the building, there’s the comforting sensation of being immersed in a contemporary alpine wonderland.
This contemporary black fireplace extending all the way to the ceiling has become a focal point of the lounge room.
Traditional and contemporary styles are skillfully combined into a one relaxing environment.
At the bar modern straight lines are being complemented by the string of antlers hanging from the ceiling.
Local materials like felt, loden and stone are being combined with vintage. The main building is actually a converted 1950s chalet that still has its original wooden flooring.
“With sense-stirring views of the Matterhorn, Cervo is a hotel that embraces its mountainous surroundings. Fresh, welcoming and with a distinctly modern twist, it’s where guests can live and feel Zermatt at its best.”
Hotel Located directly at the end of the slopes and on the edge of the forest. Direct elevator access to the Sunnegga Station and ten minutes by foot to the train station and village center.
