Casa2020

Staying at Casa2020 means spending your holiday in a former monastery— at Convento das Bernardas in the coastal town of Tavira in the Portuguese Algarve. The Pritzker Prize winner Eduardo Souto de Moura converted the more than 500-year-old monument, built in late Gothic style, into an apartment complex. The holiday apartment in the west wing of the building ensemble is accessed via the impressive inner courtyard with saltwater pool.

Region/Town: PT – Portugal, Algarve, Tavira

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.

Castellaccio Suite

The Castellaccio Suite is a hideaway for two with a fantastic view over the Umbrian hills, all the way to Lake Trasimeno. It is situated at 600 metres above sea level near the village of Piegaro on the border with Tuscany. Cocooning was the keyword for the property’s Belgian owners when they began planning the house: they wanted to create a retreat for two people that would be truly surrounded by nature.

Convento Olhão

mavie

The holiday house mavie on the Greek island of Lefkada evokes associations with an elegant ocean liner. The building consists of several cubes arranged in a row, and a slightly twisted cuboid structure stacked above them. You enter the house on the upper level, which is glazed on three sides and resembles a command bridge. From the living room with a sitting area, kitchen and dining area you can enjoy views of the Ionian Sea, the city of Lefkada, and the mainland.
