VILLA VALS - Vals, Switzerland - PlansMatter Architecture

This Airbnb Alternative Is Designed For People That Love Architecture

Everyone knows Airbnb, the app where you can rent a room or whole house from someone. It lets you stay in places that go beyond the classic hotels and B&B’s and allowing you experience a place more ‘like a local’. But if you want to stay in a place that offers more than just a roof over your head, and are searching for great interior design, you might not always find what you were looking for. Luckily, there’s an alternative for architecture enthusiasts!

PlansMatter makes it possible to stay in well-designed houses, build by famous architects. PlansMatter is very similar to the vacation rental service Airbnb. Except, the homes listed on PlansMatter need to be beautifully designed, authentic and have an architectural value. Some of their favorite residences include “Villa Vals”, designed by Bjarne Mastenbroek and Christian Müller in the Swiss Alps, and “The Kinney House”, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. They only add and search for properties they’d want to stay in themselves.

“Use PlansMatter if you appreciate the importance of beautiful architecture and how it can influence your experience – wherever you may decide to go.”

They wanted to elevate the importance of design and that more people were able to enjoy great architecture during their travels. Because your accommodation also makes or breaks your travel experience!
