The customer approached us with an exact idea and faced us with certain challenges that we had to master. He wanted a yurt with a window front to the lake, so that guests can enjoy the beautiful view of the lake. In addition, a terrace should be built around the yurt, on which guests can sit outside in summer.
We do not see such a big project every day and it's a nice opportunity for us to show what capable people are behind our production and what can be done with a yurt.
With normal windows the guests were denied access to the terrace with the safety gate and only with a second door the exit to the terrace would have been a bit limited. Therefore, we developed extra double casement windows for this purpose and combined these laterally with two French windows. In good weather, a large part of the window front can be opened from the inside as well as from the outside.
The biggest challenge was to set the framework for the one-sided window front. Normally doors and French windows are edged in a straight frame and the roof beams are lengthened accordingly. Here, the entire upper part of the frame was executed around. The roof beams are all the same length and the same distance to the safety gate. The weight of the roof is thus distributed evenly and stability thereby increased.
Another topic was the snow conditions in Zweisimmen. The restaurant is open 365 days a year. To relieve the roof and the crown, we built four fixed columns. They also form the delimitation to the fire bowl, which is placed in the center and gives the guests in the winter the necessary souls heat.
The whole yurt was adapted to the smallest detail to the new shape and tailored to the needs of the customer. In such a large project there is always a test setup in production. This allows minor corrections to be made on site. This allows us to ensure a flawless and quick setup on the pitch.

"In search of a really special" dwelling "for our events at the Forellensee in Zweisimmen, we set challenging conditions. It should create an event space that fits organically and close to nature in our beautiful Obersimmentaler lake and natural landscape, a homely feeling at the sight spreads and inviting.
In addition, the room had to be heated, multifunctional and movable. Because in 2-3 years this space is being restrained on the island! It should only consist of natural materials, but still had to be weatherproof and winterproof.
Only those who seek, who find ...
But what, who and how? Apparently not so easy ... From winter gardens with window fronts, over tepee to Chapiteau, finally to JURTE. There she stood; a yurt on the "Rocher de Naye" over Montreux. The "what" was ticked off. But still "who" and "how"?
When researching fabric manufacturers from France, about dealers without competencies (of whatever kind) continue to ZELTWELT! The name is already program! Philosophy, appearance and message ?! Consistent, uncomplicated on the first phone already by DU and apparently at any time of the day or night with mail replies to the site.
The "how" should - so I feared - these people of Zeltwelt probably tear out the last nerve - demand everything, far from it. We clarify this with our production, came the interim response. The positive decision came the next day. So get quote - check - adjust - delivery confirmation - order - deposit. Then the delivery with pinpoint accuracy - construction within one day with five great employees !!!
Gorgeous ... Tomas, his wife and Selina just pulled out all the stops and completely satisfied us. Thank you, for the stunning service! »
