Architecture aficionados take note – a new Airbnb-inspired platform is offering stays in stunning modernist homes around the world. Started by two savvy architects, PlansMatter offers an impressive catalogue of beautifully designed homes to choose from such as Christian Müller’s earth-rammed Villa Vals in Switzerland or Frank Lloyd Wright’s Kinney House in Wisconsin.
The rental platform is the brainchild of Connie Lindor and Scott Muellner, two architects who share a love of beautiful design. The service allows the team to spread that love by enabling architecturally-inclined travelers to explore new destinations while experiencing firsthand what its like to wake up in some of world’s most exquisite homes.
Muellner explains, “Even though the importance of design is becoming increasingly evident, often times we only experience the thoughtful design of our physical environment at a product design level, or in public architecture. To experience world-class residential architecture by actually staying in it for a few days, or ideally more, is incredibly moving. This experience really lets us understand the positive impact great architecture can have on our day-to-day lives.”
Their vacation rental options are certainly impressive, including works by big name architects such as Olson Kundig, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, Christian Müller and Frank Lloyd Wright. There are even quite a few options for the eco-minded traveler looking for off grid options such as the itHouse by Taalman Architecture.
