This is the debut of yoo inspired by Starck in Switzerland, bringing the iconic interior designs to the high end Swiss residential market. yoo, founded by John Hitchox and Philippe Starck, has partnered with Peach Property Group AG, a leading developer of high-quality residential property in the German-speaking Europe. yoo Wollerau offers the best of the best in the stunning location in Wollerau, close to Zurich. yoo inspired by Starck has seen the successful completion of over 20 projects around the world.

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’.”

Residents can choose from four of Philippe Starck’s idiosyncratic designs created for yoo inspired by Starck; Nature, Classic, Culture and Minimal, ensuring their home is exactly as they wish. 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.

The sales volume of the project amounts to roughly CHF 59 million.
