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.

Region/Town: IT – Italy, South Tyrol, Verdings

Scenery: Nestled in nature on the estate of an organic farm

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.
