Kitzbuehel Mansion in Austria by Splendid Architecture

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

Article source: Splendid Architecture

When architect and designer Nina Schmid visited the very steep plot surrounded by mountains for the first time she knew instantly that she had to find a way to capture the fantastic views. The unique location of this property in the Alps should become noticeable from the outside and the inside. The two wings of the building appear like two pieces of wood. The center part of the mansion reminds of a fire, with its shimmering and sparkling appearance. It is the heart of the building: it connects the upper and lower tract. Starting from this center the whole ground plan was developed: the construction and different functions of the Kitzbuehel Mansion rely on this center.
