Image of the Day: The Omnia


By: Five Star Alliance

The Omnia is a contemporary interpretation of the traditional mountain lodge. Here in the Swiss Alps, the mountain lodge, a quintessentially American concept, has been reinvented for its European environment by the New York based architect Ali Tayar. This dialogue between two cultures was the starting point for the design. While the materials and the craftsmanship reflect the tradition of the Valais, the furnishings are inspired by a warm, handcrafted modernism.
