THE HOUSE OF NOUVEAU
LAYERED • CURVACEOUS • PLAYFUL • ROOTED • ART NOUVEAU • ORIGINAL FEATURES • LAZY LOUNGES • S-CHANF • CENTRAL ALPS • RELAXED • FAMILIAR • CHILLED • UPPER ENGADIN
The arty Alpine enclave of Upper Engadin perfectly contrasts the rather glitzy bling of St.Moritz, here mature elegance and intellect has always played refuge to the creative scene, celebrated by artists and writers.
Where better then to build a house of patrician, celebrating a return and what better style than that of the ornate Art Nouveau to echo your shared worldliness and presence.
Restored with a passionate hand, today peacock turquoise, warm ochre and vivid reds cloak the stencilled walls with ornate flowing motifs, which dance across the airy rooms in syncopated rhythm. This is truly a snapshot of the playful Jugendstil with a very clever style intervention borrowed from the 50‘s- all balanced by the solidness of the warm parquet floors.
This is a very richly decorated, irresistibly comfy urban villa that whispers confidence, style and utter sophistication - this is Upper Engadin.
