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

Aux Losanges

The large white diamond pattern in the entrance area are already suggesting it: Aux Losanges in the Tschiertschen mountain village in the canton of Grisons is no ordinary traditional mountain chalet—even if it almost appears to be one from the outside. The architecture firm Caruso St John has transformed the Walser log building dating from 1869 into an extraordinary holiday home with a function room for an art-loving couple from Zurich. They gave the house, formerly used as a café, a make-over that combines British extravagance and Swiss down-to-earthness.

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

Das Dellacher

Haus Dellacher is considered one of the most important architectural monuments in Austria. The building is an early work of the Austrian-American architect Raimund Abraham, who achieved international renown, particularly through the construction of the Austrian Cultural Forum in New York. Raimund Abraham designed the house in the Burgenland in the 1960s for his friend, the photographer Max Dellacher. It was vacant for over 20 years until architect Johannes Handler saved it from decay in 2015 and restored it true to the original. It is open to the public not only for architectural tours, but can now also be booked for overnight stays.

Zum Egle 1336

Concrete and the Middle Ages! Zum Egle 1336 is a B&B with two rooms in the historic old town of Constance. Opening up instead of covering up was the maxim of the building’s renovation. Traces of the past were meticulously uncovered and put on display. For example, the raw walls of the two guest rooms show remains of old floral wallpaper and medieval murals with images of saints and banners.

Region/Town: DE – Germany, Baden-Württemberg, Constance at the Lake Constance

Scenery: In the historic centre, just 300 m from Lake Constance

Accommodation: B&B

Das Schnitterhaus

In Groß Sperrenwalde in the Uckermark region, timber construction professor Tim Göckel and garden architect Marc-Rajan Köppler have created an extraordinary three-hectare garden world on the site of a former nursery: with meadows and woodland, orchards and an apple tree avenue, lush perennial plantings and hedges cut in cloud shape. The former day labourers’ house from the 1920s, situated next to the landscape park, has been rebuilt and converted into a holiday home for six people.

Bo Pavillon

The Bo Pavilion, located in the heart of the Saarland, a German federal state, is the joint project of three friends. Designer Heike Schneider, architect Michel Leinenbach and visual artist Martin Steinert have combined their skills and expertise to create a building that blends architecture and art. The pavilion’s polygonal ground plan is as versatile as its possible uses: it serves as a holiday home for a relaxed retreat, as a location for inspiring workshops and as a place for focused work.

Sieseby-Loft

Sieseby Loft is nestled in the property of a former farmhouse on the outskirts of the village of Sieseby on the Schlei inlet of Germany’s Baltic Sea coast. The loft is integrated into an old barn, but stands out with its façade of black larch wood planks. Large windows – up to eight metres high on the garden side – bring plenty of light into the rooms and offer views of the park-like garden property. Floorboards and wooden ceilings, exciting lines of sight, works of art, and a calming colour scheme define the ambience.
