Barn House and Farm House

Take your extended family or friends to Denmark! The ensemble of buildings in the Odsherred region in the north-west of Zealand offers plenty of space and special living experiences: the minimalist architecture of the Barn House stages space, light and views and is in dialogue with the traditional Farm House.

Region/Town: DK – Denmark, Odsherred, Høve

Scenery: Surrounded by fields and forests in the middle of a Unesco area

Recharge House Klitmøller

The fishing village of Klitmøller is the centre of Cold Hawaii, a coastal area in the north-west of Denmark that is very popular with surfers. If you want to surf or watch the surfers on the water, it is not far from the holiday home—the beach is only 450 metres away. The L-shape of the cedar-clad house is inspired by the traditional farmhouses of West Jutland. What at first sight looks like one building, are however three units under one roof.

Scenery: 450 metres from the North Sea and close to famous surf spots

Aux Losanges

The large white diamond pattern in the entrance area are already suggesting it: Aux Losanges in the Tschiertschen mountain village in the canton of Grisons is no ordinary traditional mountain chalet—even if it almost appears to be one from the outside. The architecture firm Caruso St John has transformed the Walser log building dating from 1869 into an extraordinary holiday home with a function room for an art-loving couple from Zurich. They gave the house, formerly used as a café, a make-over that combines British extravagance and Swiss down-to-earthness.

Faazihaus

A magnificent mountain panorama and pure air are the constant companions when spending a holiday at the Faazihaus in the Swiss Alps. The solid timber building on a sunny south-facing slope in the tiny mountain village of Martisberg was built in the 1990s on the foundations of a historical farmhouse (a so-called heathen house) and stood empty for decades in its shell condition. Now it has finally come to life!

Erlenhof

The Erlenhof in Unterjoch, a mountain village in the Bavarian Allgäu region, is modern and without alpine kitsch, yet firmly rooted in local traditions. The massive wooden building is part of an organic farm and replaces a 370-year-old farmhouse that was destroyed in a fire. During the construction of the house and the design of the apartments, great importance was attached to sustainability.

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…

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.

Das Schnitterhaus

In Groß Sperrenwalde in the Uckermark region, timber construction professor Tim Göckel and garden architect Marc-Rajan Köppler have created an extraordinary three-hectare garden world on the site of a former nursery: with meadows and woodland, orchards and an apple tree avenue, lush perennial plantings and hedges cut in cloud shape. The former day labourers’ house from the 1920s, situated next to the landscape park, has been rebuilt and converted into a holiday home for six people.

Schloss Prossen

Schloss Prossen (Prossen Castle) is a holiday residence in a former manor house in Saxon Switzerland—situated only 300 metres from the river Elbe and close to the spa town of Bad Schandau. The centuries-old building looks back on an eventful history and was in a dilapidated state when Jutta and Torsten Wiesner bought it in 2014…

Haus Wanderlust

Wild and romantic nature surrounds the Wanderlust holiday home in secluded Treseburg, a dreamy village at the entrance to the Bode Gorge in the Harz Mountains. This historic half-timbered house has been elaborately renovated and converted into three holiday apartments. The special thing about this place? Two apartments have been planned in such a way that they can be flexibly occupied by different numbers of guests – and can also be booked together.
