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

Warth52

The apartment house Warth52 is located in the village centre of Warth am Arlberg – above the church and directly on the slopes.

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.

Tempel 74

Temple 74 in Mellau in the Bregenz Forest is a new project by Evi and Jürgen Haller. With their renovation of Mesmer House in Bildstein, they showed how an old building can be infused with a modern interior life. The Tempel 74 apartment buildings are new, but they too skilfully combine tradition and modernity, as well as superb architecture and craftsmanship. The apartments are furnished in a minimalist style with straight-lined furniture and radiate both a down-to-earth quality and a distinct elegance. Through the windows and from the balconies you can enjoy views of the village square and the mountains.
