Minimalistic

Houses with a minimalistic interior design.

Knütthuus

Fashion designer Irina Rohpeter and building engineer Nils Kistner have fulfilled their dream of building their own holiday house in the countryside. The result: the Knütthuus. They designed the house as a place to make connections. The Low German name doubles as the property’s motto: “knütten” means both knotting and knitting. The Knütthuus is a place where holidaymakers can come together. Local designers also display their products and artworks here. A striking yellow net made of ropes and an open spatial concept define the design theme.

Dexamenes

A former wine factory on the western coast of the Peloponnese has been given a new lease on life as a chic hotel. The K-Studio architectural office in Athens has brought to light the poetic beauty of 1920s industrial buildings. This transformation of a wine factory into a hotel has preserved the raw character of the architecture, but the modern additions lend the rooms elegance and a contemplative ambience.
