Above the village center of a small district town in Upper Austria, the client was able to buy a plot in a unique location that offers a splendid panoramic view of both the historical center and the Alps.
Because of the slope, the single functions of the house (sleeping / living / leisure) could be stacked, which was a request of the owners from the beginning, so as not to sacrifice the generous natural lighting and also offer different insights and views. The family wanted a clear distinction between common, guest accessible areas, and private rooms.
The top floor includes the family bedrooms and features smaller openings for privacy. These are placed in order to prevent unwanted insights but nevertheless offer fascinating views. Wide openings on the ground floor establish differentiated views and each room has its own unique characteristics and atmosphere. From this level there is access to the main terrace, pool, and open fireplace which creates a space to relax.
Each floor receives its own ideal orientation according to its functions. This results in staggered parts, whose projections and recesses can also be used as protected outdoor spaces.
