The family home is situated on a steep slope on Heuberg (Hay Mountain) in Vienna with a breathtaking view. Its archetypal form with a double pitch roof blends subtly and compactly into its surroundings. The house is a cross laminated timber-construction, which has been left visible inside and clad with a facing of pre-weathered larch-boards on the outside. The interior is split-level, making the most of the 80m² constructible surface and limited height – an ideal solution for the hillside situation, the view and the demands of the actual space. 6 staggered floor-levels follow the hill slope and are connected with a central dog-legged stair. A generously-sized living area at the top under the high saddle-roof opens to a spectacular view over the city, an open kitchen and dining room is connected to a terrace which leads directly to the garden.
What makes this project one-of-a-kind?
Quality of space and reference to land- and cityscape. Much room under limited conditions.
