Houses in the wood, Turracherhöhe

Prospering in the woods one house at the east flank another one at the west then one in-between some room is left between the trees that will remain and in the end the roadside outhouse as a welcome and to maintain a behind not an entirety but a sequence prospering in the woods togetherness materiality concrete brought into shape through wooden planks black cast an annex for stairs and bathroom massive walls – inward and outward massive floors – bottom and top rough walls – smooth floors wood from trunks laced piled up dovetailed joinery nothing more required but a good carpenter room measured according to the length of trunks one room per level concrete for duty wood for freestyle.

What makes this project one-of-a-kind?
Almost unfazed by the touristic hustle and bustle and the large scale wellness top dogs on the Turrach Mountain Pass, a tiny new village has grown. Resting at the hillside and what’s more midwood between pine trees and larches you’ll spot three slim inhabited towers and a barn.
