Casa Sabir

Outside: a lively hustle and bustle. Inside: peace and quiet and the grandeur of bygone eras. Casa Sabir is located on the market square of the small island of Ortigia – the historic centre of the Sicilian city of Syracuse. The 85m2 apartment on the first floor of the house, built at the beginning of the 20th century, boasts a great deal of historical flair. High vaulted ceilings, old cement tiles and walls, which display the traces of the original plastering in different colours, characterise its ambience.

The Türalihus is part of a historic ensemble of buildings in the centre of Valendas, Switzerland. This small mountain village on the banks of the Rhine in the Safien Valley is known for its stately town houses. First built in 1485, the Türalihus has been extended multiple times over the centuries – with annexes, additional levels, and the stairwell from which the house derives its name. The house stood empty from 1941 until 2007, when the Swiss “Vacations in a Listed Building” Foundation acquired it from the son of the well-known Swiss architect Rudolf Olgiati and transformed it into the holiday home it is today.

La Tour Sarrazine

La Tour Sarrazine in the village of Montaren near the southern French renaissance town of Uzès is a medieval tower dating to the 12th century. The building was restored over the course of five years and transformed into a unique B&B, in which combining authenticity and comfort was of the highest priority. New elements are clearly recognisable as such, but have been designed in a neutral mode that doesn’t steal the limelight from the historic building itself.
