Grand Hotel Kronenhof Unveils New Renovation

Grand Resort Kronenhof, located just outside St. Moritz in Switzerland, lately unveiled a big renovation to its community spaces as part of the property’s longstanding partnership with French interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon (who has previously worked on the Four Seasons Lodge George V, Paris, The Savoy in London, the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills and sister property Kulm Lodge St. Moritz). Subtle variations have been designed to deliver the Neo-Baroque Grand Dame into the 21st century, while retaining essential historic aspects.

On arriving at Grand Lodge Kronenhof, visitors will enter an updated reception area that has new sliding doors etched in white and rose gold, producing a semi-transparent snowflake impact. Great to know: The historic center table and legendary chandelier are even now existing in the lobby. To be certain a residential come to feel, shades of blue and present day furnishings have been built-in all through.

In addition, the Kronenhof Bar has been wholly redesigned and is now property to the art piece by Charles Paris Chez Rubelli—a gold chandelier that resembles the historic Kronenhof crown, titled “Luster Angela.” Other artworks influenced by the Swiss stone pine roots and customized-made by artist Jane Puylagarde can be found on the varnish panels of the bar counter. Past the new art, “deep hues, wealthy elements and golden accents” are exhibited throughout the space.

The renovation of the Chimney Home has built the space considerably far more household. The original black chimney and Eames chairs continue being, even though new modern functions had been included, such as Florence Knoll sofas, a glass chandelier and modern bookshelves.

Grand Resort Kronenhof first opened its doors in the very first 50 percent of the 19th century as a guesthouse on the other hand, the main aspect of the current building—which is a registered historical landmark—was created at the quite end of the 19th century in Neo-Baroque type. The most current wing, completed in November 2007 and costing about $33 million, is made up of 28 guestrooms and a spa intricate masking extra than 21,500 sq. toes. A lot more not long ago, Pierre-Yves Rochon has been renovating a couple guestrooms per calendar year, whilst the lodge has also included a cigar lounge and adjoining billiards room.
