Vacation architecture

Take a trip with Floornature to visit 10 architectural projects for vacation homes built in different parts of the world, from the sea to the mountains. We start in Norway with a home built in Havsdalen by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter of Oslo.
We then go on to Nowhere But Sajima, a house designed by Yasutaka Yoshimura Architects in Yokosuka, a resort town not far from Tokyo. While in the Orient, we go to see Baan Damneon, a vacation home near Bangkok inspired by traditional Thai constructions and built in accordance with the principles of bioarchitecture by architects Methus Srisuchart and Ginggal Metchanun. Chile is home to a vacation home designed by architect Ricardo Torrejón Schellhorn: Casa Limache, while Casa Zinc by architect Aaron Hojman is a greenstyle vacation home in La Barra, near the renowned resort of Punta del Este in Uruguay.
For a sustainable vacation in Europe, and specifically Limburg, in the Netherlands, Geuloever is a holiday home built on wooden poles by studios Zwarthout and Upfrnt. In France, the architects of RAUM designed a seasonal home on Quiberon Bretagna peninsula and WY-TO architectes designed Contemporary Vernacular in Corsica. In Leis, in the Alps in Canton Grisons, architect Peter Zumthor designed three matching vacation homes: Oberhus, Unterhus and Türmlihus. We end our tour in Italy, with Casa Erny, a privately owned villa on the waterfront in Ragusa designed by Architrend.
