PlanMatter, the new site dedicated to tailoring your perfect vacation home, is changing the rentals game with a modern architecture twist. Finding the right place to stay used to be a nightmare. Airbnb, invaluable as it is, is saturated with options across a spectrum so wide that simply typing Paris and the dates doesn’t cut it. Who knows what happened when you had to actually call hotels to book stays, on the phone no less!

 

Today, we’re lucky enough to have travel options specified for us, that what we want is available at the click of a mouse. PlansMatter, the new vacation home rental tailored for those interested in modern architecture homes, does just that. For the design junkie, modern aficionado, or cool-home enthusiast, PlansMatter is tailoring the search for your perfect vacation home with your interests in mind. The site works on a simlar model as Airbnb, with each rental being a normal home that is rented for a standard period of time, and paid for through the site. Each listing comes with a description of the home and a series of images taken by the renters.

 

Founded by two architecture school classmates, Connie Lindor and Scott Muellner, PlansMatter is a service to reserve and rent vacation homes that are specifically architectural marvels, built by some of the most famous and noted architects in history. While certain listings on the site are exclusive to PlansMatter, the site also works as an aggregate of similar sites like Airbnb to find beautifully designed homes for any location. Here are some of our favorites:
