This hotel in Switzerland takes “sleeping under the stars,” to the next level with no roof nor walls for its guests.
Originally designed for the Null Stern hotel as an art installation by Swiss concept artists Frank and Patrik Riklin with hospitality expert Daniel Charbonnier, the idea did so well in the past two consecutive summers with rave reviews and loads of reservations, they decided to bring it back. Zero Real Estate, under its new name, returns to the Swiss Alpine foreland of Wildhaus, Toggenburg.
The hand-built design is incredibly minimal. Three suites are available, each with a mid-century modern bed, two dressers, lamps and a chair atop a wooden platform overlooking the Swiss Alps under the summer sky.
Each suite comes with a hospitality expert or a modern-day butler who is there to bring breakfast or is there when needed.
In case of bad weather, there is an alternate suite on-site, a hotel room in an Alpine hut or an updated Toggenburg farmhouse where guests can stay.
The truly minimalist style of the suites surrounded by the gorgeous and natural landscape is an intriguing concept for a hotel, demonstrating the desire to be immersed in nature while important needs are taken care of.
