Apartment

Umamma

In the Umamma apartment in the small Tuscan town of San Miniato, the Middle Ages are combined with industrial style. The apartment is extraordinary and will elicit a “Wow!” from many guests—or “umamma” as they say in Tuscany for something very amazing. It took seven years to restore and transform the rooms located on the first floor of an old 16th century palazzo. The original structure of the interiors was reconstructed and the historical materials were exposed. The back of the building was opened up, and large windows were added to frame the views over the Arno Valley. The 230 sqm flat is unusually generous in size but the truly unexpected space is hidden in the vaulted basement…

Region/Town: IT – Italy, Tuscany, San Miniato (Pisa)

Scenery: In the historic old town with a wonderful view over the Arno Valley

StadtmauerQuartiere

The StadtmauerQuartiere (town wall quarters) are two small holiday flats in the middle of the historic centre of Freinsheim, a small town in the Palatinate region. The townscape is characterised by a historical town wall with towers and gates. The StadtmauerQuartiere are located directly at and partly even on this wall. The apartments are designed in a contemporary, clear design vocabulary that contrasts with the historical context but fits in sensitively.

Loft in der Nudelfabrik

Zeitz—located in the south of Saxony-Anhalt between Jena and Leipzig—is a city in upheaval. One of the initiatives intended to revitalise the former industrial town is the conversion of a former pasta factory into a creative location. In 2017, Birgit and Mathias Mahnke bought the factory dating from 1909 and have since been developing the 12,000 square metre premises into a place for the visual arts and virtual reality—with exhibition areas, a co-working space and accommodation for artists.

Region/Town: DE – Germany, Saxony-Anhalt, Zeitz

Scenery: In the building complex of the old pasta factory, 15 min walk from the city centre

Faazihaus

A magnificent mountain panorama and pure air are the constant companions when spending a holiday at the Faazihaus in the Swiss Alps. The solid timber building on a sunny south-facing slope in the tiny mountain village of Martisberg was built in the 1990s on the foundations of a historical farmhouse (a so-called heathen house) and stood empty for decades in its shell condition. Now it has finally come to life!

Region/Town: CH – Switzerland, Wallis, Martisberg

Scenery: In a quiet panoramic location in the Unesco World Natural Heritage Aletsch-Jungfrau

Accommodation: House, Apartment

Erlenhof

The Erlenhof in Unterjoch, a mountain village in the Bavarian Allgäu region, is modern and without alpine kitsch, yet firmly rooted in local traditions. The massive wooden building is part of an organic farm and replaces a 370-year-old farmhouse that was destroyed in a fire. During the construction of the house and the design of the apartments, great importance was attached to sustainability.

Region/Town: DE – Germany, Bavaria, Bavarian Allgäu, Bad Hindelang

Scenery: In a small village, surrounded by a meadow landscape

Atelier Palermo

Palermo is a city of contrasts, where baroque splendor meets morbid charm and a lively atmosphere. In the capital of Sicily, Stefan Koppelkamm—graphic designer, photographer, author and university lecturer—has fulfilled his dream of having his own atelier in a baroque palazzo. During the time he is not using the studio, it can be rented.

Region/Town: IT – Italy, Sicily, Palermo

Casa2020

Staying at Casa2020 means spending your holiday in a former monastery— at Convento das Bernardas in the coastal town of Tavira in the Portuguese Algarve. The Pritzker Prize winner Eduardo Souto de Moura converted the more than 500-year-old monument, built in late Gothic style, into an apartment complex. The holiday apartment in the west wing of the building ensemble is accessed via the impressive inner courtyard with saltwater pool.

Region/Town: PT – Portugal, Algarve, Tavira

Scenery: Just a few minutes walk from the old town, near the river Gilão and the salt lakes

Freiform

Below the village of Verdings, architect Martin Gruber has planned an organic free form next to his own farmstead, which will be rented out as an extraordinary guest house. Like a nature observatory in the midst of the South Tyrolean mountains, the contemporary glass pavilion affords a captivating view across the valley. The design absorbs the topography of its immediate surroundings with its glass envelope and blurs the boundaries between nature and building.

Region/Town: IT – Italy, South Tyrol, Verdings

Scenery: Nestled in nature on the estate of an organic farm

A Casa de Aldán & Apartamentos Ardora

Overlooking the harbour, the A Casa de Aldán Hotel is situated in the fishing village of Aldán on the west coast of Galicia. Architect Alfonso Penela has created a building from the ruins of an old salting factory, which preserves the history of the place and at the same time radiates modernity. The reduction to a few materials—raw stone is combined with smooth cedar wood, glass and zinc—creates a calm, timeless ambience. Those who prefer to stay in an apartment will love the zinc-covered Ardora Apartments close to a beach that can be reached via private stairs.

Region/Town: ES – Spain, Galicia, Aldán

Scenery: Overlooking the harbour, close to the beach

Accommodation: Hotel, Apartment

Warth52

The apartment house Warth52 is located in the village centre of Warth am Arlberg – above the church and directly on the slopes. The building in modern wooden architecture is simple and straightforward. On the long sides, square windows with striking borders accentuate the simple wooden façade; at the front, generous glazing up to the gables and the corner glazing of the bistro on the ground floor provide views of the mountains. 

Region/Town: AT – Austria, Vorarlberg, Warth am Arlberg
