The village of Stadtschlaining has the last still original medieval village center of the Austrian Federal State of Burgenland, which is also protected by a federal decree. On the main square, of the village center, behind house Nr.12 the ruins of the courtyard building have been resurrected by keeping the renovated stone walls, while incorporating a Therapy Centre on the ground floor and a terraced apartment on the roof top making up a total space of 200m².
The stone walls remain visible behind the courtyard glazing. The historic walls along with the design aim to create a calm and relaxing environment for counselling therapy. The terraced courtyard is completed by a staircase to a panorama terrace. The below situated vegetable garden, in front of the previous city wall, can be accessed through stone steps via the city wall.
What makes this project one-of-a-kind?
Modern building, made with medieval stone walls, concrete, wood and glass, following the former function as a terraced courtyardbuilding between mainhouse and citywalls. Also, quiet surrounding in an invisible court makes therapie easy.
