News - YOO & Peach take YOO to Switzerland
The first YOO project in Switzerland, designed by YOO inspired by Starck, has launched in Wollerau. Developed by Peach Property Group, YOO Wollerau will offer 18 luxury loft-style apartments in one of Switzerland’s most stunning locations a half an hour drive from Zurich.
Residents can choose from four YOO inspired by Starck apartment styles and unique amenities including a Club Lounge, sumptuous spa and pool offering the ultimate in design-led lifestyle.
Residents will enter YOO Wollerau through an ethereal lobby inspired by the idea of a fleeting moment, when clouds form unexpected shapes in the sky, when fish ripple the sea or when a flock of birds fly together as a whole. Seeking to emulate the light, form and shadow of these fleeting moments, the light installation in the lobby features delicate LED lights that float from the celling like a cloud, with each LED programmed to flicker on and off in a random pattern.
Philippe Starck, Creative Director of YOO inspired by Starck, says: “We are very happy to be working with our great friends from Peach Property Group for the first time in Switzerland. Beautiful Wollerau already offers majestic nature and with this I can't compete. We only hope to bring a little more love and happiness to the homes and the lives of the people of YOO Wollerau.”
The eighteen exceptional luxury apartments all have high ceilings, oversized windows and “canons à lumière”, which ensure that the natural beauty of the area is centre stage. A generously designed outdoor lounge and outdoor pool is set in a beautiful garden so that home owners can enjoy the outdoors to the fullest. A private spa area, including sauna, steam bath and fitness room completes the offering.
John Hitchcox, Co-founder of YOO, says: “At YOO, we believe in creating personal sanctuary, and making places where people can come together and feel part of a community. Wollerau is a stunning location, and ideal for an escape from city life, whether it’s for the individual or whole family. Together with Peach Property Group, we will bring the YOO ethos to life with this stunning collection of high end condominiums.”
Dr. Thomas Wolfensberger, CEO of Peach Property Group, adds: “We are thrilled that we can now offer the YOO concept to our Swiss clientele and realise a project in Wollerau that exemplifies our belief in quality. With it, another highly attractive Swiss development project of Peach Property Group is entering the realisation phase.”
YOO Wollerau is the second collaboration between YOO and Peach Property Group, the first being YOO Berlin, on the shores of the Spree in Berlin-Mitte, which is due for completion at the end of 2013. YOO Wollerau is set to complete in 2015.
