6 architectural masterpieces to rent for designer holidays

From Souto de Moura to Pietro Lingeri, a summer getaway is even more enjoyable when you are a guest in a home designed by a great architect.

When the eagerness to enjoy a well-deserved ‘break’ from the daily routine in a place of unspoilt nature or in a charming city is combined with the pleasure of staying in an architecturally designed residence, it is even better. This is the case of a number of homes signed by famous designers, rented out and available for holidays not only to enthusiasts of the subject but to all those who want to have an emotional experience in the name of design, taste and refinement.

So, be it in the winding meanders of a city (Souto de Moura’s house 1015 and sky loft in Porto), in the forests of Japan (James Turrell’s house of light), in the spectacular scenery of the Dolomites (Bruno Morassutti’s villa Morassutti in San Martino di Castrozza), on top of a cliff with a sea view (Can Lis by Jørn Utzon in Majorca) or on the shore of a lake (Villa Leoni by Pietro Lingeri on Lake Como), with the travel ticket you buy not only a self-deserved time in a ‘dream’ home but also a journey into the thoughts and sensibilities of its designer.
