Just a few hours north-west of the decadence of Berlin, in the sleepy seaside town of Dierhagen (a municipality situated on the Fischland-Darß-Zingst peninsula with fewer than 1,700 residents), hide two minimalist houses waiting to accommodate and rejuvenate guests in true design-led style.
Snuggly tucked into a picturesque pine forest, the beach a short stroll over sweeping sand dunes, Berlin-based architect Herbert Hussmann‘s NEWHAUS features clean; sharp lines; customised interiors; classic design pieces from Minotti, Vitra, and B&B; a balanced colour palette; and the ultimate ambience in which to relax and recharge.
The two wooden structures each offer a 120 square-metre living space, with the lounge, dining area, and open kitchen all situated on the ground floor — alongside your very own Scandi sauna and bathroom. Large windows and a sliding door, that leads to the dune-facing terrace, flood the properties with natural light and killer views. Upstairs in both houses, guests are treated to three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a second lounge area that looks out toward the coast.
Available for rent for a minimum of a week in summer months, and just two nights the remainder of the year, NEWHAUS also keeps its culture-savvy visitors immersed with a selection of contemporary artworks curated in collaboration with Smac Berlin, and a raft of nifty tech gadgets and systems. From weekend escape to a gathering of family friends, NEWHAUS is an urban escape on the Baltic Coast, a place to lose yourself among the pines and touch back to nature with long walks and salty sea breezes; all with those design-obsessed whims pandered to.
