The village end of the lift delivers you to the heart of Zermatt, in the main street close to the church. Its location perched high on a hill gives it spectacular views, yet access to the heart of the village is easy.View Location Map
A huge 300m2 Manhattan style loft set in a wooden chalet, Heinz Julen Loft is without doubt the most spectacular property in Zermatt. It combines acres of glass, steel, textured concrete and wood in a unique symphony of fusion architecture - created by local star designer Heinz Julen.
The Loft was Heinz's private home where he hosted many rock-star parties. Both levels of the Loft are served by a private lift (elevator). The main loft living area has a suspended and illuminated table, which can be raised and lowered from coffee table, to dining table, to ceiling height; the latter creating a large party space.
In one corner you can play on a baby grand Steinway piano, while in another you can sink into a large sofa and gaze simultaneously at the stunning view over the village and at the crackling fireplace set into the glass wall. Around you: two desks, jack-in-the-box armchairs, a wall of art, and a signature Heinz Julen chandelier. In fact, all the sought-after furniture in the Loft is designed by Heinz.
Very airy in feel, due to the extensive use of glass, the Loft has a unique bird's nest view of the village and the Mischabel mountains. The sense of space, light and closeness to nature that the Loft provides is unparalleled: there are no barriers between the nature outside and the home space inside - all is fluid and free.
On the two sides overlooking the village, the walls consist of floor to ceiling glass, with French windows 6 metres high leading to a large terrace. (There is a white electric exterior curtain that can wrap itself around all that glass if need be). The ceiling is supported by seven columns, while the glass walls have an inset fireplace and three alcoves.
A metal staircase leads up to the mezzanine, which has another sofa chill-out area with TV; a free standing Jacuzzi bath, a cosy dining alcove, a galley kitchen (with cupboard handles made out of bent soup spoons), a cantilevered bar area and a guest toilet. As you walk on this floor you will notice that the floating feeling it creates is due to it being made entirely of opaque glass with subtle inset lighting.
Price is based on exclusive use of the property for 6 guests to include full gourmet catering and open bar. Also available on a bed and breakfast or self-catered basis, please enquire for further details.
Overlooking the main loft area, there are two double en-suite bedrooms, one above the other. Each bedroom has its own small bathroom with shower and WC, and a balcony. The third, master bedroom is very private with its own landing. It is an exact replica of the famous Into the Hotel suites created by Heinz Julen, featuring a free-standing bath with wood-slatted massage cover, an island bed on a rotating floor, his and her bedroom sinks, a separate shower room and WC, a walk-in wardrobe, a sofa, and a TV set into the glass window.View Floor Plan
