Residential Architecture: Two in One House, Tirol by Triendl + Fessler Architekten: “..lifted on a concrete base on a 1500m2 linear and narrow plot of land this residential structure was developed for two families..due to the complex topographic setting, the corridors are arranged like a chain in order to orient views from rooms towards the southern scenery..the rectilinear facade features large windows to capture the surrounding landscape and to allow natural light to penetrate the interior. apart from the existence of two entrances, the exterior does not indicate that two families are living in the building. as a result, the circulation of the structure follows a simple path: entrance to the home is located at the eastern side where the garage provides plenty of room for storing alpine vehicles; a separating partition follows to allow for a sheltered patio; then the the two houses are situated within the structure which leads to the open garden..” Extensive glazing, natural light and mountain views; significant interior wood elements..
