post-modern Geometries form up ‘Zell’ lakehouse in Austrian Alps
Steiner Structure f/f completes a lakehouse mission within the Austrian Alps, recalling post-modern architectural cues. Tucked in Zell lake’s misty forest surroundings, the residence‘s design idea follows varied architectural rules and actions. Referencing Louis Kahn’s Trenton Bathtub Home (1955), the place to begin of the design shapes a pyramid hip roof formation on high of a sq. base. Furtherly amplifying the composition, monolithic concrete is utilized, including 50 cm of thickness to the bottom construction. The development makes use of resistant concrete manufactured from reused materiality scattered within the combination distributing thermal insulation all through.

colourful particulars adorn the dense concrete for a refined inside
The materiality of the construction chosen by the staff permits secure decomposing within the case of demolition and permits window and door frames to be positioned inside the openings of the partitions with ease.

A lush yellow curtain within the basement and polychrome drapes on the bottom flooring gown up the inside, whereas a vivid multi-hued carpet covers the hallway. All three ranges are related by way of a skinny white metal spiraling staircase.

villa + folly composition displays Japanese picket structure
The highest flooring echoes jap architectural options utilizing delicate picket shutters to steadiness the heavy concrete under. The house opens up in direction of the outside when the blinds are pivoted and provides in to the view of the Zell lake and the previous Austrian city throughout. The Japanese reference appears curiously at dwelling exhibiting off the steep slopes of the pitched overhang roof, in addition to the picket screens in refined craftsmanship. All elevations are practically an identical with their porticos barely off-center. The form of villa + folly answer creates harmonic pressure between the 2 volumes, reminiscing Frank Lloyd Wright’s Westcott Home (1908), the staff provides. The lakehouse presents a contemporary, but pure development from the neighboring homes within the Alpine woods.
