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:

Bax Box in Seekirchen, Austria by Strobl Architekten ZT GmbH

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012

Article source: Strobl Architekten ZT GmbH

The German term Backskiste (BAXBOX) is used for the locker on board of a ship in which everything that is lying around unnecessarily can be stored quickly and easily. This Baxbox contains everything a boathouse owner will never miss but had always urgently needed. The new box was erected on the existing foundation of a small old house, whose bottom slab can be newly leveled with a simple jack to adjust to any changes. The floors and ceilings are made of solid glued laminated timber and half-timbered walls. It is covered with a protective layer of Silano foil and thick reeds. This allows the prefabricated box to match its environment in terms of functions and materials.
