Chalet Gstaad by Ardesia Design
Location: Gstaad, Switzerland
Chalet Gstaad – a 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, cosy atmosphere using a natural palette of neutral colours and soft textures such as linen and wool. The designers and architects focused on creating pure and clean lines and a sense of unity to the whole of the 380 square metres of this beautiful lodge.
The walls of this chalet are covered in Australian rough-sawn timber and the floor is made of Danish fir planks of up to 15m 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.
