Maintaining its ethos of partnering with the very best in luxury, Swiss Development Group has named renowned design house Candy & Candy as the base build designer of the Du Parc Kempinski Private Residences’ penthouse space.
The triplex residence crowns the Belle Époque mansion of Du Parc, which sits on the shores of Lake Geneva and has been meticulously restored from an Edwardian hotel into a collection of 22 elegant homes by residential and lifestyle pioneer, Swiss Development Group.
The dynamic and innovative design house, whose philosophy is driven by the pursuit of perfection, will bring a vast amount of expertise to the project.
On choosing to collaborate with Swiss Development Group, Nick Candy, CEO of Candy & Candy commented: ‘With over 20 live design projects around the world, Du Parc is Candy & Candy’s first design commission in Switzerland, and we are delighted to be involved with such a prestigious project. The penthouses are the absolute centrepiece of this remarkable building, and with our specialist knowledge in adapting and refurbishing classical heritage properties, we look forward to designing these exquisite homes in this exclusive location’.
As bespoke designer, Candy & Candy will be responsible for the layout of the penthouse’s interiors and all aspects of the base build fittings, from selecting the timber and stone flooring to the design of full bathroom and kitchen finishings and fittings.
The three floors of the penthouse have been designed to maximise space and light with all living areas having been thoughtfully positioned on the south side of the building to capitalise on the panoramic lake views. At the heart of Candy & Candy’s design for the grand penthouse is the 17m-high open space in the central atrium. Built around this impressive core will be three levels incorporating 18 balconies, a formal living room, bar, wine cellar, cigar room, cinema, and a library/study.
As a pioneer of bespoke and innovative design, Candy & Candy will apply its unrivalled combination of dynamic design, cutting edge technology and exclusivity to deliver the base build of an exquisite residence with an exceptional location. This ambition, combined with Swiss Development Group’s aim to bring an unprecedented standard of living to Switzerland, makes way for a natural and successful partnership.
