Island

STRANDWEISS & STRANDGRAU

On the Baltic Sea island of Usedom, a family from Berlin built two holiday homes exactly as they wanted them to be: with plenty of space for children and grandparents or friends, a private wellness area and a garden for playing and barbecuing. The houses are located in the Baltic Sea resort of Zinnowitz. The beach is 500 metres away and can be easily reached by passing through a beech forest.

Casas da Vargem

With sweeping views of the sea, Casas da Vargem sit in a sunny location on a hillside above the village centre of Ponta do Sol on Madeira’s south coast. The semi-detached house was built on two stone warehouses that had fallen into ruin. They were reconstructed and supplemented with cubic volumes of similar dimensions that cascade down the terrain, creating patios in between.
