For several years now, Remodelista directory member Jonathan Tuckey of Jonathan Tuckey Design has been leading a double life. Based in London, where his firm is known for its inventive overhauls of old buildings, he’s also been busy remodeling vacation houses and designing performance spaces in the historic Swiss mountain village of Andermatt, where he now has a satellite office. He and his wife, Annabel, and their two kids also have a home base in the center of town, Halbhaus (Half House), a 17th-century timber-frame chalet that Tuckey transformed into the ultimate Alpine getaway, a few English comforts included. And when they’re not in residence, it’s available as a vacation rental.
