— How would you describe Mirror Houses in a few words?

Victoria: “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?

Victoria: “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?

Victoria: “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.”

— Please tell us about the architecture and interior design of Mirror Houses.

Victoria: “The feeling you get of the place differs greatly depending on whether you look at it from the owner’s house or when entering from the east side as a guest. The side facing the owner’s house is all mirrors, so that it looks like the garden is much bigger.

The houses are separated by a green garden wall and are slightly elevated to provide a better view. The front of the houses is a glass façade that can be opened up completely so that the terrace and living room become one open space. The whole house is basically an open space with a bedroom, which has sliding doors that can be pushed into the walls.

A lot of thought went into the sheets, beds, and décor. There are windows directly above the bed so you almost feel as if you’re sleeping outside, as one with nature. It’s very quiet, even though the location is close to the highway and industrial zone. Everyone is amazed at how much you feel immersed into nature.”

— Please tell us more about the rooms and facilities of the holiday rentals.

Victoria: “There’s a bedroom, bathroom, and living room with a full kitchen that opens up to the balcony. The living room couch can be made into a bed if you have children. You can use the sun beds in the garden for relaxing as well as a storage area downstairs to store skis in the winter or bicycles in the summer.

It’s a self-catering holiday rental where people cook for themselves. We provide cleaning after the stay, and can provide suggestions of where to go and offer transportation or organize trips. We are currently working on a South Tyrol area guide for our guests as well.”

— To you personally, what’s so special about the whole experience of staying at Mirror Houses?

Victoria: “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. ”
