SIX SENSES RESORT APARTMENT
Interior Architecture of
a Ski Resort Apartment
THE SETTING Six Senses Resorts recently finished building its latest hotel on the ski slopes of Crans Montana, Switzerland, and, with it, a dozen of luxury serviced apartments. These were sold unfinished with only the infrastructure and structural walls in place.
THE SCOPE Design a layout for a three bedroom luxury apartment including all finishes, lighting, music, security and furnishings.
THE SECIAL REQUEST With concrete carrying walls already in place, the client requested that the kitchen be maximized as well as the wardrobe space and bathroom for the master bedroom. A discreet yet convenient access to laundry and pantry and an attractive guest toilet should also fit into the scheme.
THE CONCEPT We revisited the entire standard layout and requested the carrying walls be diamond-cut to allow for new openings. This allowed for an elegant circulation to all rooms, a full-length wardrobe for the master bedroom, a kitchen double its original size, and a pantry and laundry room concealed behind hidden doors. A stunning library wall, clad in local oak, striated and oiled and in local granite with suede backing and indirect lighting, features a gas fireplace.

It was a pleasure working with local artisans and sourcing the wood for the walls and ceilings locally as well as the granite. The light fixtures are made with recycled aluminium and the bathroom countertops in reconstituted stone include 30% recycled waste. The lighting and plumbing were chosen with the latest in low-energy consumption.
