DURI VITAL

Who could resist the quaint authenticity of Ardez? The Swiss village has not only resisted becoming a tourist trap, but its fertile ground grows Mirabelle plums and artichokes. In the middle of this town stands a 1660 reduit. Although it stood empty for 60 years, the structure remained relatively intact and unblighted before Duri Vital came along. Vital specializes in unorthodox restorations of old Engadinestyle houses, and he immediately got down to work on the reduit, creating a jewel of a home in cooperation with the local historic preservation office, Among the up-dates: geothermal heating, a high-tech kitchen, and stunning modern bathrooms. And the owners from Zug applied the same level of detail to the furnishings. Guided by a passion for contemporary, timeless design, they deliberately chose USM as their quality accent pieces in pure orange and brown.
