Unusual shapes

All you need do is take a wander around St Moritz to encounter some of the most unusually shaped buildings standing side by side. This is very much part of the charm of the place, the architectural style goes from traditional chalet to heritage meets contemporary, to simply wow! Creativity runs wild here and boundaries are there only to be leapt over!

There is something to be said for allowing free reign, no two house or even blocks of flats look the same. One lake facing modern set of flats has glass fronted terraces from which a giant penguin admires the view… other, more traditional styles look so imposing they are almost severe…

One thing is for sure they know how to make the most of the beautiful surrounding scenery, every building is designed to enhance as well as maximise on the landscape…
