Kitchen remodeling project in Ausserschwyz?

I've finally (almost ) convinced OH to let me remodel the kitchen, so am starting my search for a kitchen firm and/or a project manager.

I've been back and forth wrt to using a local firm vs a German firm - and in terms of the kitchen itself am leaning towards German, as what I see is of far better quality, with a wider selection, than what seems to be available here.

But I'm still keeping an open mind.

One advantage to using local is that I might have a chance of gaining a permit to glass in under the balcony area leading out from the kitchen, which would allow me more design flexibility. I know if I use a firm out of the area any permit request will be denied.

I need a firm that will send a designer to our house to actually look at the space rather than just working from blueprints - and I need a designer who actually understands construction. This is a deal-breaker because the space is small and difficult - most of the mistakes I made in putting in the last kitchen can be traced back to this issue.

I'm also looking for a firm that does something other than 'industrial chic'. Natural woods would be my preference.


Can anyone recommend a kitchen design and construction firm in the Ausserschwyz area, or Einsiedeln, or failing that elsewhere where in SZ?

If I can't find a Swiss firm, I will need a local Bauleiter to manage the project. Can anyone recommend a Bauleiter in Ausserschwyz with a good track record of helping with the permit issues, who does smaller remodeling projects? (All I've spoken to so far only do new builds or whole house projects.)

Many thanks.
