Andermatt Swiss Alps today announces the launch of their newest luxury alpine property, Gilda. Gilda draws its design from 1930s Bauhaus aesthetics yet is constructed using locally sourced and natural materials and only uses 100% carbon-neutral electricity and heating. The property is a mere 90-minute drive from Zurich airport and is located on the village’s prestigious luxury shopping boulevard. This prime location guarantees homeowners an unparalleled Swiss Alpine experience, embellished with breathtaking views of the mountains and the picturesque Alpine village of Andermatt.
Asian buyers can get an exclusive glimpse of this year-round holiday real estate at events in Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, and Singapore.
This boutique collection of luxurious Alpine residences comprises twelve 2–4-bedroom residences, four of which are lavish duplex penthouses ranging from 1,140 to 2,002 square feet. Beyond its residences, Gilda also features a luxurious in-house spa, two saunas, a gym, as well as a dedicated ski and bike room with private locker space.
Maureen Yeo, Regional Director of Asia at Andermatt Swiss Alps shared that, “In 2022 we saw a 30% increase in buyers from Asia who now call Andermatt their home. Beyond Gilda itself, Andermatt’s year-round activities, and ever-developing world-class amenities add value to its properties, including an award-winning 18-hole golf course, a new 650-seater concert hall, multiple Michelin-starred restaurants, with more exciting lifestyle offerings to come.”
She added: “Especially with rising heat waves globally, Andermatt offers the allure of pleasant summer temperatures. We consistently emphasise sustainability in our initiatives, which not only improve the performance of buildings but also ensures long-term investment returns for buyers. Real estate prices on average have increased by seven percent year-on-year for the past 10 years delivering attractive capital gains for owners.”
Switzerland remains a top investment choice globally. Andermatt stands out as the only location in Switzerland with no restrictions for foreign buyers on purchases or resale. This is a unique chance for Asian investors to invest in Switzerland, promising good capital growth and rental income, backed by comprehensive management services.
Gilda is an ode to the 1930s Bauhaus aesthetics and a modern icon of Swiss craftsmanship. The refined lined facades, accentuated with expansive curved windows, seamlessly infuse classical Swiss motifs with contemporary finesse, creating a blend of classic and contemporary aesthetics.
Miroslav Šik of Architectural Office Šik, exterior architect, commented: “We used traditional practices in a very modern way. For example, we hand-laid shingles over round corners and added silver ink onto their surface. The rounded shape links back to the Bauhaus period while the silver ink gives the traditional shingles a modern sheen that also protects them from aging visibly.”
Working in close collaboration with Architectural office Šik, David Marquardt, Founding Partner and Head Architect at MACH, the interior architects, said: “Harnessing natural elements and beige colour palettes, our ambition is to cultivate the ultimate residential comfort. Be it the crispness of winter or the zenith of summer, Gilda ensures residents find solace. The warmth of walnut herringbone flooring, juxtaposed with the elegance of a natural stone fireplace, assures instant warmth in the Alps. During milder days, the elegantly furnished loggia becomes an ideal spot for relaxation.”
Embodying Andermatt Swiss Alps’ devotion to green initiatives, Gilda has been constructed using locally sourced and natural materials in Switzerland. Similar to all properties developed by this developer, operation for Gilda uses 100% carbon-neutral electricity and heating and adheres to the Minergie standard, a recognised Swiss quality label for sustainably and ecologically designed buildings.
Exclusive viewings will be held on 23rd September in Kuala Lumpur and 30th September in Singapore; please RSVP if you’d like to attend. Prices start from CHF 1,590,000, (USD1,800,000).
