apartement O., Kauns

How to design a fifty square meters apartment for a family of four with retreat options for all, two bedrooms, lots of storage and enough space for living during the day – on top of that in badly lit, disproportional rooms?
Heart of this vacation home in the Tyrolean Alps is a multifunctional southwest facing room, that offers a variety possibilities and different spatial experiences. The wooden floors are implemented of grey oiled, local ash wood. As a contrast, all carpenter works have been constructed in bleached maple. A green wool felt curtain was chosen to separate the bunks from the corridor. Many -partly hidden- storage compartments, niches, drawers and cabinets playfully suggest the use of the apartment as a weekend and holiday home.

What makes this project one-of-a-kind?
Spatial diversity, high-quality finishing with the help of local craftsmen.
