A luxury vacation home rental to find peace and to live in complete harmony with the surrounding majestic mountainscape of the South Tyrol Dolomites.
How would you describe Mirror Houses in a nutshell?
Mirror Houses are two luxury holiday homes in South Tyrol in Italy; it’s modern architecture surrounded by apple trees and set into the incredible landscape of the Dolomites.
What was your inspiration to create Mirror Houses?
The idea to create Mirror Houses came from my mother who used to be an interior designer. Eventually she decided that she wanted to build special houses as holiday homes. Since Mirror Houses were going to be located on my parent’s property, they wanted them to be somewhat separate and really liked Peter Pichler’s idea of using a mirror. We collaborated with him, so that the houses would have their own entrance and would be completely separate from my parents’ house.
Was it your idea from the beginning to create such contemporary buildings?
Yes, we wanted to build something special. Generally, nowadays a lot of people prefer renting holiday apartments or holiday houses instead of staying in hotels. Our idea was to create something beyond the ordinary. I guess that you could say we succeeded in doing so, as there are even locals who find it hard to believe that these houses exist in this location. They are amazed when they visit the place.
To you personally, what’s so special about the whole experience of staying at Mirror Houses?
It is very special to me is that even though you are pretty close to everything, you still feel completely immersed in nature. I don’t like big hotels where everything is standardized and think it’s nicer to stay in a calmer place. Here you can stay in a luxurious house with your own garden, cook your food, have a glass of wine and sleep in a really comfortable bed. It’s a high quality life.
