Turmhaus Tirol

Situated in the Tyrolean Alps, Turmhaus Tirol is built into the gradient of a steep mountain slope and reaches up six floors into the sky. The lower three floors are dug into the slope itself and form the concrete foundation for the wooden structure. Flamed larch boards of different widths, some of which overlap, give structure and character to the façade. The windows, arranged according to functions of each room, also liven up the reduced design of the building, with its wide cantilevered saddle roof.

Türalihus

The Türalihus is part of a historic ensemble of buildings in the centre of Valendas, Switzerland. This small mountain village on the banks of the Rhine in the Safien Valley is known for its stately town houses. First built in 1485, the Türalihus has been extended multiple times over the centuries – with annexes, additional levels, and the stairwell from which the house derives its name. The house stood empty from 1941 until 2007, when the Swiss “Vacations in a Listed Building” Foundation acquired it from the son of the well-known Swiss architect Rudolf Olgiati and transformed it into the holiday home it is today.

kleines Vulkaneifelhaus

Kleines Vulkaneifelhaus is a retreat for two in the midst of the unspoilt Eifel landscape in northwestern Rhineland-Palatinate. Situated on a steep slope, this timber house, clad in black charcoal planks, sits atop a plinth of fair-faced concrete. The house appears closed off from the entrance side, and even rather small – an effect created by its few window openings and the low roof on this side.

Region/Town: DE – Germany, Rhineland-Palatinate, Schutz

Name: kleines Vulkaneifelhaus

Scenery: South-facing slope overlooking a broad valley in the volcanic Eifel

Accommodation: House

Solarferienhaus S3

Solarferienhaus S3 (Solar Holiday Home S3) is proof of how an A-frame house dating to the 1970s can be converted into an innovative energy-plus house that – with its modern architectural language and purist interior design – can also appeal to design aesthetes. Located in a former holiday village in Chiemgau, between the Chiemsee lake and Salzburg, the house produces more energy than it uses. This energy surplus can then be used, for example, to charge an electric car or bicycle.

Region/Town: DE – Germany, Bavaria, Chiemgau, Siegsdorf/Vorauf

Name: Solarferienhaus S3

Scenery: Surrounded by the charming hilly landscape of the Chiemgau

Dexamenes

A former wine factory on the western coast of the Peloponnese has been given a new lease on life as a chic hotel. The K-Studio architectural office in Athens has brought to light the poetic beauty of 1920s industrial buildings. This transformation of a wine factory into a hotel has preserved the raw character of the architecture, but the modern additions lend the rooms elegance and a contemplative ambience.

The Barcelona Sanctuary is just a half hour’s drive from the hustle and bustle of Catalonia’s capital, on the edge of a nature park and close to the coast.
