CARPENTE was initially consulted for the kitchen and dining area design of an upcoming timber lodge project in Saanen. However, our involvement grew to encompass refining the traditional chalet-style exterior design and orchestrating the interiors on all four floors of the contemporary interior space.

The final product is a four-story, five-bedroom residence that represents a collaborative process between CARPENTE and our client. Locally sourced materials take centre stage throughout the interiors, from the Red Douglas Fir floors to the steamed Pine used for ceiling panelling, wall cladding, and the stunning staircase.

Our interior design extended to bespoke wooden furniture and fittings, seamlessly integrated to flow effortlessly between functions. The project is a testament to our dedication to precision and detail, facilitated by close collaboration with local artisans and craftsmen. The success of the building has led the client to entrust us with a second project of similar scale and ambition, slated to commence in 2024.

For the Saanen Lodge staircase, CARPENTE worked closely with the local millworks and a Swiss carpenter onsite to realise our design with masterful accuracy and precision.
