A Penthouse Loft in West Zurich by Dyer-Smith Frey
View Slideshow

Interior designers James Dyer-Smith and Gian Frey, of Dyer-Smith Frey, were given the free reign to design the top floor penthouse in the Hard Turm Park building in West Zurich and create a luxurious loft. The penthouse fills 120 square meters (1291 square feet) of space and the designer duo uses a mix of woods, blues, and brass to make a warm, cohesive, light-filled space.


The pair brought in custom made furniture from their own Penthouse line from their DSF COLLECTION that’s made with symmetrical crisscrossed patterns, made up of the rhomb shape, giving the pieces, and room, plenty of texture.



The rhomb shows up again on the wall leading up the stairs creating a bold focal point and a connection between the two floors.


A collection of Tom Dixon’s large brass ball lamps hangs down from the second floor above the dining table (from the DSF COLLECTION). The black chairs are from Poliform.


A mezzanine houses the spacious bedroom and bathroom.


The rhomb pattern continues but in a smaller version and this time with taupe-grey as the background color.


A patterned concrete floor was used in the living room, making it almost look like a large area rug. More pieces from the DSF COLLECTION were used.


Blue walls and golden floors cover the entryway that leads guests to the open living and dining room.
