Peter Pichler Architecture designed a series of mirrored homes for holiday rental, located in a gorgeous apple orchard near Bolzano, north Italy. The holiday units allow guests to live in close proximity to nature, without sacrificing their luxurious creature comforts.

Each guest has access to their own garden, autonomous entrance and parking spot. Inside, the units are equipped with a kitchen, living area, bath and bedroom, along with a skylight that opens to maximize the entry of natural light.

The units are built upon a base above the ground, giving them the appearance that they are floating. The extra height improves the view the temporary residents have from their cantilevering terraces. But perhaps the most impressive feature of this holiday rental is the glass facade that gradually fades into the black aluminum shell of the rest of the exterior. The glass catches views of the panorama, while allowing the residence to almost entirely blend with its surroundings.
