Magnificent Modern Chalets

Take a look at some of our favourite modern ski chalets in the Alps.

The architectural design of the chalet has stood the test of time as it continues to line the mountain villages of ski resorts around the world. Today architects have taken key concepts from traditional chalets and given Alpine properties a contemporary twist to fit with the modernisation of the ski resorts themselves. If you are looking to stay in a modern chalet for your next Alpine adventure one of the following properties might be the one for you.

Apartment Kavina 1, Gstaad

Located in the Gütscheli area of Gstaad, this single level apartment is filled with contemporary artistic flair and vibrant colours throughout. Exceptional works of art from sculptures to paintings can be found throughout the property with old wooden walls making the perfect backdrop. The modern open plan living area invites guests to sit down on stylish furniture and relax by the fireplace as the evening progresses.

Apartment Kavina 1 is located just a few minutes walk from the Gstaad Palace Hotel and has three en-suite bedrooms accommodating six guests.

Backstage Luxury Loft, Zermatt

A jewel within the heart of Zermatt, Backstage Luxury Loft was designed by renowned architect Heinz Julen. Transforming a 700-year old traditional chalet into a contemporary masterpiece, Heinz Julen has more than left his stamp on this property with interiors and furniture having been produced in his very own Zermatt studio.

An open plan building with high ceilings supported by steel pillars, Backstage Luxury Loft is filled with contemporary art as well as an incredible dining table which can be winched up to the ceiling to provide further space beneath.

For the tech-savvy, all levels of the chalet are connected with a private elevator, and the hot tub’s glass wall opens at the touch of a button revealing the spectacular mountain backdrop. What more could you want from a modern chalet?
