A classic since 2010: The current destination recommendations of URLAUBSARCHITEKTUR.
In “Houses and People” the URLAUBSARCHITEKTURteam presents 28 new holiday destinations throughout Europe, which are not only worth visiting for their architecture. From a Tyrolean tower house fit for James Bond, to a homage to traditional building culture in the Alentejo by Manuel Aires Mateus, to an energy self-sufficient solar home in the Chiemgau.
This new publication once again combines recommendations for holiday houses that have made a lasting impression on the URLAUBSARCHITEKTURteam thanks to their unique architecture and tourism concepts. Inspirations for your next getaway or your own building project –although anyone familiar with our work knows that the book contains only a small part of the total recommendations made by our editorial staff.
The complete collection can be found in our online gallery at www.urlaubsarchitektur.de. Since 2007, founder and publisher Jan Hamer has compiled a collection of architecturally outstanding holiday houses –about 500 to date –on the URLAUBSARCHITEKTUR website.
The focus is on holidayhouses and apartments in Europe, in addition to selected hotels and B&Bs. The Magazine. Brand new and published in 2020 for the first time: The People behind the Houses In issue #1 of this 64-page magazine supplement, the visionaries behind the projects are showcased for the first time; meet a Croatian “house whisperer” or learn about the “swarm intelligence” of a housing cooperative on the river Müritz.
In the magazine, our editorial team focuses on the people behind our partner houses, and lets hosts, architects, designers and creative minds have their say –with a clear vision and extraordinary ideas.
What drives them? Why do they do what they do? And how do they do it?
