    Jestico + Whiles has completed the interior design of the luxurious boutique hotel Villa Honegg in Switzerland, recently classified as ‘Five Star Superior’. Sitting at an altitude of almost 1,000 metres on Mount Bürgenstock, the exclusive resort provides guests with a peaceful haven and magnificent views across Lake Lucerne.The five‐storey chalet style 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.

    Hotel Villa Honegg is a luxurious private retreat with 23 suites and guestrooms, spa, finedining restaurant, conference facilities and a cinema‐quality screening room. An outdoor infinity pool and whirlpool has stunning views over the lake and mountains.

    The design for the interiors was 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.
