Copenhagen area have completed stunningly beautiful interior design work at the Mammertsberg, a hotel and restaurant in a classic Swiss villa built in 1911 overlooking Lake Constance on the border of Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
Behind the restaurant is Andreas Caminada, chef and owner of the three-Michelin-star restaurant Schloss Schauenstein, and together with Silvio Germann from Lucerne, his chef at the IGNIV in Bad Ragaz, the duo has a “gastronomic experience with joy, imagination, alpine DNA and cosmopolitanism.”
To complement the building’s original chalet architecture with an interior palette that juxtaposes past and future, the Danish design studio worked on the existing classic proportions of the space, with its high ceilings, generous openings and paneled walls, to create a warm and enveloping atmosphere Restaurant to enjoy the culinary talents of top chefs. Due to constraints imposed by the building’s historic status and existing features, including an exceptional spiral staircase by architect Tilla Theusthat, Space Copenhagen had to adapt its design to find solutions that encompassed the things that needed to be left untouched throughout they put their own design touch on the building project.
Spaces throughout the property feature lighting, handpicked for its sculptural qualities, including mobile chandeliers by Michael Anastassiades and a sculptural sconce by Mathieu Matégot. Bespoke elements in the dining area include freestanding furniture in collaboration with Copenhagen cabinetmaker Malte Gormsen, solid oak tables and furniture designed by Space; Her Wonder Sofas and Stay Chairs designed for Gubi are located in the lounges on the lower level. The Copenhagen design office have also handpicked the art displayed throughout the restaurant, drawn from Andreas Caminada’s personal collection, and will add and swap out objects such as books, ceramics, glass and other decorative elements over time.

Combining the charm of a historic building with the convenience and contemporary design of the present, these provide guests with a soothing environment in which to unwind after a busy day in the Alps, before preparing for a breathtaking culinary extravaganza.
