Boutique hotel in Switzerland with views across Lake Lucerne
Award-winning architecture and interior design practice, Jestico + Whites, which has offices in both London and Prague has designed the Hotel Villa Honegg project. Completed in 2013, the luxury five-storey chalet style hotel can be found in Switzerland.
The hotel was originally built in 1905 in the Scandinavian ‘Gustavian’ style. Its facades have been restored by local craftsman to ensure its survival for another century or more.
Sitting at an altitude of almost 1,000 metres on Mount Bürgenstock, the exclusive resort provides a peaceful haven and magnificent views across Lake Lucerne.
Hotel Villa Honegg is a luxurious private retreat with 23 suites and guestrooms, spa, fine-dining restaurant, conference facilities and a cinema-quality screening room. An outdoor infinity pool and whirlpool has stunning views over the lake and mountains.
Jestico + Whiles’ design for the interiors were inspired by the breathtaking scenery in which the hotel is set. Rich timber and stone have been combined with silk and leather in natural colours to create a comfortable, contemporary environment. This is complemented by carefully selected, hand-crafted furniture finished in classic leathers and elegant, timeless fabrics. Every finish has been carefully chosen for its inviting appearance and texture, grain, pile, and weave, to provide a tactile quality to each surface.
