Karcher Design door handles are renowned worldwide for their unique approach to combining perfect form with optimal function in the design, engineering and manufacture of their prestigious products. In recent news, it was reported that door handles from the company were to be used by globally-successful architects Arnold Perren Zurniwen GmbH in a large-scale restoration project - this has now been confirmed along with further details of the model that has been selected.
The building being restored is The Hörnlihütte, part of an adjoining pair of lodges built close to the Matterhorn in Switzerland. Built in 1880 at a massive 3,260m above sea level, The Hörnlihütte offered 17 beds to accommodate daring climbers of the notorious mountain, one of the highest in Europe. In 1911, the community of Zermatt built the Belvédère and the two lodges functioned in close physical proximity but administratively separately - the current restoration plan will see the two buildings finally joined for good.
The main aims of the restoration are to improve sustainability for energy supply, enhance the very basic sanitation facilities and bring the building into line with new European fire safety regulations. That such a revered and respected architect firm chose Karcher Design to supply door handles to the important project is testament to just how impressive Karcher’s reputation is.
Arnold Perren Zurniwen has chosen the Rhodes door handle from Karcher’s eclectic and refined collection. The handle is securely fixed using the 3-piece rose system designed and patented by Karcher and its Grade 3 classification makes it suitable even for heavy-duty use such as on public doors.
