Do you have your plans ready for next year, to get out and about as soon as possible? Or are you going to find out on our map this holiday where you want to go in the new year? 

We're happy to say that, despite the Covid restrictions, no less than 10 modern house museums signed up to our network this year, and new house museums were even opening their doors.

This month, we welcome Haus Deiters from the Artists' Colony Mathildenhöhe in Darmstadt Germany, designed in 1901 by, Joseph Maria Olbrich! And here are the new additions to our collection of modern house museums, the members that we welcomed in 2020:

Casa-Estudio Max Cetto in Mexico City
 Villa Empain in Brussels
• Haus Am Horn in Weimar

Ball-Paylore House in Tucson
• Polman House in Nagele 
Sybold van Ravesteyn House in Utrecht
• The Tempelhof in Winssen
 Villa Skeppet in Tammisaari

Wherever you are in the world, and whatever the pandemic circumstances, you can always travel the houses from the comfort of your own home. However, in addition to good health, we wish you for 2021 more opportunities to discover new Iconic Houses during your cultural trips!
Note: Plan any physical visits well in advance, as house museums can have irregular visiting times and coronavirus guidelines often require online reservation.
Welcome Haus Deiters by Joseph Maria Olbrich!
Around 1900, artist colonies were created in Germany in reaction to industrialisation. Grand Duke Ernst Ludwig invited seven young Art Nouveau artists to the Mathildenhöhe – the birth of the Darmstadt Artists Colony. In 1902, Joseph Maria Olbrich built for Wilhelm Deiters, director of the first exhibition of the Artists‘ Colony, the house with the distinctive corner tower at the east entrance to the Mathildenhöhe.

Architect Josemaría Churtichaga further describes the chalet that has replaced De la Sota's work as "a dispensable and uncultured dish."
