Sarah Zoelly, Zurich (Switzerland)
The architect Gabrielle Hächler lived in a house built by Pierre Zoelly, Sarah Zoelly’s father. And now Sarah lives in a house built by her friends Gabrielle Hächler and Andreas Fuhrimann: a five-story apartment building in Zurich’s District 5 with a raw concrete facade and bronze windows.The apartment fea- tures exposed concrete walls and ceilings, a dark oak parquet floor and a dynamic view over the Zurich train tracks: Sarah’s penthouse apartment with its roof terrace creates a bright open home. The apartment is complimented with antiques and classic modern furniture along with her own art which defines her personal style. The artist and body therapist chose USM in white, because it exemplifies the lightness of her apartment and it does not restrict her. At one time she had the furniture in ruby red, her favorite USM color, because its warmth contrasts with the coolness of the metal and goes well with her old wood furniture. “That was my red Ferrari,” she says with a smile.
