Mosel Chalets
The Moselle Chalets in Pommern, one of the oldest wine-growing villages on the Moselle, appeal not only to wine lovers but also to people with an interest in modern architecture. With their straightforward design, the three wooden houses are set apart from the traditional half-timbered architecture of the region. Since it was important to host Holger Maurer to integrate the view of the Moselle valley into the interiors, the houses are completely glazed on the side facing the valley...

ilse. dein landloft
Staying in the ilse.dein landloft apartment feels like living in the countryside—but with an urban touch! On the island of Rügen, Maike and Ralf Haug converted a historical farmhouse located near the residential town of Putbus and now live in part of the building themselves. They have converted the former stable into a 120-square-metre holiday apartment. Its name reminds of the owner, Ilse, who lived in the farmhouse all her life. Today, Ilse would barely recognise her old barn. Where chickens, pigs and a cow used to be stabled, rooms have been created which are furnished with great attention to detail, creativity and a sense of humour...

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...

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.
