We are Castlunger Homes We are visionary entrepreneurs and smart operators We are courageous & reliable We are globally connected & locally rooted

Castlunger Homes is your universal partner for the development, design, planning and marketing of visionary real estate projects in curated regions.

Castlunger Homes is our architectural firm, development company, and real estate brokerage agency. For three generations, we have dedicated ourselves to the creative process of conceiving living spaces and havens of peace that serve our client’s needs and desires. We aim to create visionary real estate projects with respect, reliability, and responsibility.

Where others see an abandoned house or a neglected plot of land, we let our creative and visionary abilities loose. We don’t stop at dreams – finding and realizing concrete and intelligent solutions to complex challenges are what drive us every day.

As a family, we are united by our love for architecture. At the same time, we hold diverse, synergetic, and complementary competencies. We are fortunate to be connected with friends and business partners across the world. This multidisciplinary advantage within our ecosystem enables us to carry out a diverse set of projects.

Our origin lies in the Dolomites and the Ladin culture. The connection with and respect for nature lie at the core of our way of living and working. Therefore, our approach to design and development is local and authentic architecture in curated destinations, that are in synergy with its surrounding environment.

To this end, we dare to be different – challenge the status quo and continuously develop ourselves and our work. In doing so, we pay great attention to reliability and sustainability in the execution and to excellence in the final result of every single project.

We are the home of your home. We are the House of Homes.


Our home turf is curated holiday destinations. The Dolomites – a holiday region of incredible diversity and one of the most sought-after mountain destinations in the world lie at the core of our identity. The valley of Alta Badia is home to all managing partners. It is also where Konrad Castlunger laid the company’s foundations in 1960.

Today, with over 500 projects in South Tyrol, Trentino, and Veneto, the Dolomites continue to be a source of inspiration and new ideas for Castlunger Homes.


Italy’s largest lake offers 150 km of coastline, is dotted with picturesque small villages, and is surrounded by olive groves and mountain peaks. Places of historical interest, sailing clubs, vineyards, gourmet restaurants, dream beaches, and mountains to climb make it one of the most remarkable holiday destinations in Europe.

In 2015, Dr. Arch. Karl Heinz Castlunger founded Garda Real Estate – a boutique real estate development company focusing on the pinnacle of the market in and around Torri del Benaco.
