Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

Article source: MHM architects

The residential house at the Millstätter See is a brick basement turn-of-the-century wooden house. Its construction date is estimated to be between 1900 and 1910.The construction assignment was to refurbish the perennially occupied house and to convert it into a modern summer house. The greatest emphasis was placed on keeping the original external appearance while adapting the internal space to make it contemporary and equipping it with the newest technology.

New Furniture Store at Innsbruck’s Gates in Grabenweg, Austria by Zechner & Zechner ZT GmbH

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

Article source: Zechner & Zechner ZT GmbH

The new Leiner furniture store can be seen from a considerable distance as you approach Innsbruck from the East on the A12 motorway. The four story structure is a beacon, in Leiner’s corporate green, to people passing by. Along with the large areas of green, the angular form of the building itself makes a strong impression. Like a folded tablecloth, the translucent metal construction envelopes the volumes of the building. With this striking facade, Zechner & Zechner are taking a stand against the standardisation and anonymity of current furniture store architecture.

Drautal perle in Drau, Austria by MHM architects

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Article source: MHM architects

The indoor and outdoor swimming pool facility “Drautalperle” is located in Spittal/Drau in northern part of the Austrian region of Carinthia, one of the most beautiful fluvial topographies in the Alps.

Therefore the central topic of the design was the fusion between inside room and outside landscape, what has been maintained by placing big windows resembling oxygen bubbles in water. By this means it was possible to break up the usually rigid partition between indoor and outdoor spaces.

House for Gudrun in Vorarlberg, Austria by Sven Matt

Tuesday, November 20th, 2012

Article source: Sven Matt

Finding peace, freedom and nature. This is what mattered most to Gudrun, and by building her own little house on the countryside she got there one step closer. However, an extremely tight budget remained, focussing on the most necessary in terms of floor space and construction was essential. The result is a “two-room-appartement” made from prefabricated timber elements based on a concrete foundation.

Article source: Josef Weichenberger architects + Partner

In the heart of Vienna’s 11th district, on a lot densely vegetated by an old tree population, a new game-changing geriatrics center was to be realized.

Central idea:

High-quality dwelling for care-dependent senior citizens in the comforting atmosphere of a green oasis – rather then the common, sterile, hospital-style atmosphere of geriatrics centers as they used to be.
