“… The Firehouse is an apotheosis – a culmination of many signal elements comprising beautiful and challenging architecture, heritage, storytelling and iterative and collaborative design. The restaurant interior is designed by Paris-based Studio KO, they’ve pulled off a genuinely unique feel. It’s warm, rustic and flatteringly dimly lit; like being transported to a restaurant in upstate New York. The restaurant is charming in the truest spell-casting sense of the word with delightful accents such as the brilliant flower sculptures by Ann Carrington… ”

The Alpina, Gstaad.
“This is no ordinary hotel; it offers a genuine Swiss experience like no other, where tradition and contemporary innovation unite to redefine the concept of luxury… The traditional Swiss mountain resort of Gstaad is as renowned for its rich-and-famous residents as it is for its enduring and picturesque surroundings. Now, for the first time in over a century, there’s a new hotel in town. Let’s just say the bar has been raised… The Alpina’s Michelin starred restaurant is a real feast for the eyes with its old hand-carved wooden ceilings and smart saddle-leather chairs. An inspired and beautiful twist on Alpine folk art is brought to us in the form of mountain goat horns fashioned from carving knives by British artist Ann Carrington.”
