DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
House on the Rocks

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
House

INSPIRATION:
The main guideline of the project is to give a clear and individualized answer, which is based on an intensive consideration of the respective location and its cultural imprint and relate the object to its environment in a natural yet unique way. The resulting concept of space is supposed to outgrow its original core purpose, creating added atmospheric value. The choice of material and the consideration of ecological aspects is considered both self-evident and crucial.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Above the valley, through which the river Ill insistently paves its sateless flow all the way to the Rhine: a residential house, in the midst of a spectacular scenery of nature. It adds a structure of gentle calmness, made of local material, built with local resources. Built onto the rock, the house unfolds a spacious landscape - with just a few nifty architectural gestures a place is created that provides protecting areas of retreat as well as rooms with generous openings towards the valley.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The house in is inhabited by a young familiy. They appreciate the poetical aspect of the design: A closer look reveals different degrees of transparency from the outside, which from the inside in turn can be perceived as a vital diversity of light and shadow, of openness and closedness, of reversing the source and its contrast.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The Project startet in 2014 and finished in 2015. It is situated in Rheintal in Western AUSTRIA

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The massive base floor of fairfaced concrete carries the wooden living floor, itself encased and protected by a pulsating fan of silver fir lamella. The reduced-form yet full-fledged materialization generates quiescent clarity, and lets one feel nature and adapted development of room: silver fur tessellation on the outside wall and on the ceiling together with white elements of sheer separation contrast the powerful oak deals of the floor.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
All this could be realized with emphasis on ecologically sustainable construction: the (low) need for thermal heat is covered by geothermal energy, complemented by a storage heater in the living room and a controlled ventilation, whereas photo-voltaics take care of electricity needs. It goes without saying that all this artwork out of natural building elements is achieved with the handicraft and expertise of local craftsmen, and under full consideration of recompactification aspects, complementing an already subdued neighbourhood.
