Residential Architecture: House for Two Families by Triendl und fessler architekten: “The elongated, south-facing building site offers a wonderful view into surrounding meadows and fields. The decision to position the building centrally on the plot, results in a layering of private and semi private outdoor areas north and south of the house..This introverted exterior serves as a buffer zone to the actual residential buildings. The internal organization of the two houses follows similar rules, but varies in shape and size. In both volumes, the living and dining area spreads on the ground floor as a large one-room over the entire depth of the building. A spatial structure is created by centrally positioned service rooms, kitchen and stairs. The bedrooms on the first floor benefit from floor to ceiling glazing, which provide views and spaciousness..The entire house is made of prefabricated wood panels and solid wood elements (KLH). The wood surfaces of the solid wood walls and ceiling were white glazed and create a contrast with the smooth, industrial flooring. The black stain of the wood facade forms a restrained backdrop for the surrounding and fits perfectly into the landscape..” Extensive glazing, natural light and views; indoor/outdoor and social sensibility..
