This four bedroomed apartment was designed as part of the exclusive Alpina Gstaad – the five star superior hotel that has re-defined luxury and alpine chic.
Nicky Dobree’s brief was to design a family home to accommodate the client’s extensive art collection with a nod to an ‘east meets west’ theme. This is immediately apparent as you enter the apartment. Silk wallpaper lines the entrance wall against which sits a red lacquered Christian Liaigre console table. Large double doors made from timber open onto the sitting room where you are drawn to Gongayasco’s (check spelling) Buddha beyond.
Panelled ceilings create intimacy within the dining room. Tartan woollen curtains add warmth and the dark wooden table adds contrast to the timber and counterbalances the metal clad fireplace opposite. A pair of large sculptures draw the eye in.
In the bedrooms carpet adds softness underfoot. Tall upholstered headboards with bespoke linens and cashmere curtains are the perfect retreat at the end of the day.
The apartment features a luxurious and spacious master bed, a guest twin bedroom, a double bedroom and a quadruple bunk bed room for children and their friends who visit.
