The Dorint Blüemlisalp is idyllically situated on the hillside above Lake Thun and blends perfectly into the surrounding mountain landscape with its striking, peak-like silhouette.
Appia was commissioned to redesign the reception and lobby area – an exciting project that involved both the design and the room layout. The reception desk was moved to a new location and skilfully combined with a back office for four employees. The redesign of the bar area was also one of Appia’s tasks. The curved shape of the bar was not only chosen for its appealing design, but also offers practical advantages in terms of the number of seats created. A special highlight is the lift chair in the lobby area, which refers to the village’s history and the numerous lift stations in the area. A piano rounds off the atmosphere of the reception area.
To create a harmonious atmosphere, Appia integrated grey and brown tones as well as various wooden elements. Graphic wallpaper patterns break up the straightforward design with rustic accents.
While the realisation of this project is already progressing, other exciting projects for the Dorint Hotel Blüemlisalp are in the planning phase. Our interior design team has already developed concepts for the boarding room, the co-working space and the teen club, which will be realised shortly.
