A home away
from home

Bio.Design.Apartments in Carinthia, Austria, for guests from afar and locals alike. A new way to experience a countryside vacation – as a starting point or simply a place to arrive.


There is this longing for the here and now, for breaking out of the digital hamster wheel, and for experiencing life in its original form. Enjoying oneself, being outdoors, savoring the time. Experiencing instead of accomplishing. We want to create a place for this longing, local and close by. A place for people who crave nature. Without a packed schedule and a thousand options. A home in the middle of a vacation.

Icon metro-quote

"There are calendars and clocks to measure time, but that doesn't mean much, because everyone knows that a single hour can seem like an eternity, and sometimes it can pass like a moment - depending on what you experience in that hour. Because time is life and life resides in the heart."

Momo, Michael Ende
