Architektenhütte Allgäu

You get the best view from high up! The Architektenhütte (Architect’s Lodge) not only sits high up on a steep slope in the Allgäu Alps; in addition, the living area has been laid out under the roof and thus offers the best view of the surrounding mountains and the Iller valley.   The three-storey wooden building, situated in a hamlet adjacent to the Nagelfluhkette Nature Park, reinterprets the local traditional architecture in a modern form. With its straight-lined, austere design, the building looks almost like an alp…

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.

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.

Warth52

The apartment house Warth52 is located in the village centre of Warth am Arlberg – above the church and directly on the slopes. The building in modern wooden architecture is simple and straightforward. 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.

Region/Town: AT – Austria, Vorarlberg, Mellau
