Mikoszewo, Pomerania, Poland

The newly built houses with a total of four holiday apartments of the "Tilia authentic home" are beautifully situated in the river delta of the Vistula and near the Polish Baltic Sea coast. Tilia is the Polish term for linden tree and the namesake are in the immediate vicinity in the large garden. Katarzyna Pielaszkiewicz is the owner and designer behind these stylish holiday homes, which have been welcoming guests since summer 2022.

Their modern interpretation of a barn that once stood on the same site aims to bring the historic settlement back to life. Traditional construction, old wood and brick are combined with contemporary interiors and modern architecture. The different types of wood, such as the weathered wooden facades and historic wooden beams, as well as the consistently used natural colors radiate calm and security.

Every detail is just right here - large windows that let plenty of light into the rooms, modern bathrooms, cozy seating areas and stylish lamps. The two houses are connected with a kind of arcade. Each room focuses on a different element or material (wood, sun, air, earth). You can also relax in the beautiful panorama sauna or in the garden and enjoy good regional food with lots of vegetables and fish from the region.

The long-term vision is to gradually restore the historical settlement. The Zulawy region is unique with its architecture (arcade houses), cuisine and tradition. The guest houses are just the beginning and of course the flagship of the project. It is planned to reconstruct the former brick barn and the old mill as well. Sustainable materials and energy efficiency play a major role here – just like in the past. The balancing act between authentic reconstruction and exciting new interpretation has been successful here and is lived with a lot of passion and commitment.

ArchitectureThe entire house structure was built from recycled wood, bricks and roof tiles taken from old, local barns and houses. Only local craftsmen were involved in the construction work. The building insulation consists of wood fibre boards of varying density. The idea behind the architecture is the Japanese philosophy of Wabi Sabi, which is also reflected in bonsai gardens, ikebana and tea ceremonies. A philosophy based on simplicity, naturalness, transience and the discovery of the beauty of nature. The idea was to combine two symmetrical, solid and new constructions with the beauty of old wood, in which the transience is clearly visible. These features complement each other perfectly and create an image of architecture as a joint work of man and nature, which is what gives it its special charm and aesthetics.

FoodThe dishes are made exclusively from high-quality, regional ingredients. If possible from their own garden or from local farmers. Bread and pastries are freshly baked and for breakfast there are vegetables, goat cheese, homemade hummus, vegetable pastes and seasonal fruit salads. For lunch and dinner, depending on the season, there is, for example, a soup made from pumpkin, Jerusalem artichoke or parsnips. Popular main dishes like vegetarian cabbage or beetroot gnocchi are actually liked by everyone. In summer, fish from the Baltic Sea such as trout or catfish can additionally be ordered fresh from the garden and eaten. The kitchen waste is composted, of course.

EnvironmentThe heat source is an economical heat pump and capillary tubes for radiant heating. We use environmentally friendly cleaning agents and avoid plastic wherever possible.

Well-BeingThe sauna stove is powered by dry branches from the surrounding trees. There are yoga mats to borrow on site.
