SKI LODGE ENGELBERG

Engelberg, Switzerland

3rd Feb 2016

Ski Lodge Engelberg, in the resort town of the same name, is a long-time dream of two Swedish friends whose holidays often consisted of endless hours on snow peaks and variable lodging experiences around the world. Who better to develop a ski lodge than two connoisseurs of what mountain escapes do and could offer. Donning carpenter’s pants in 2009, the pair transformed a run-down house into a stylish hive of activity.

The design throughout feels masculine and practical, yet very sophisticated. They’ve retained some of the original character, but modernised it with darker, neutral paint shades and contrasting dark finishes on the woodwork and panelling. The furniture is considered too. Modest black frame chairs, wooden blocks, fabric stools; nothing fights for attention, but rather it all works together to subtly reinforce the refined atmosphere. Delivering well-designed rooms and spaces to relax in is not the only focus at the lodge; the owners ensure that the gastro offering contributes equally to the overall experience.
