This calm location near the Swiss Alps is where we can find a magnificent 5,400-square-foot swiss chalet that’s a true representation of interior architect and designer Pierre Yovanovitch’s different way to design.
In a way, this residence is a reimagination of what a Swiss Chalet is supposed to be, and it brings together local influences, vintage details, and a customized modern aesthetic. Committed to designing the interiors of a two-story residence in Andermatt, Pierre Yovanovitch, approached the design project more as haute couture than architecture, collaborating with contemporary artists and artisans on site-specific installations and custom furniture to set a polished yet laid-back design aesthetic that harmoniously mixes the avant-garde and the natural.
Solid wood is also highlighted in many of the bespoke furniture designed by Pierre Yovanovitch, such as the angular sofa of grey-tinted larch wood and matching daybed in the living room, and the two semi-circular benches of solid oak in the entrance hall, both made by French carpenters Pierre Elois Bris.
The predominant usage of natural materials is complemented by a diverse range of light fittings that are inspired by nature such as American designer Jeff Zimmerman’s hand-blown suspension lights in the hall inspired by salt crystals, and “Fragile Future”, an ethereal chandelier above the dining table, inspired by the fragility of the dandelion.
