Situated on a slightly sloping northern hillside, House D is a so called Auszugshaus, which is an Austrian expression for a building once used as a residence for “retired” farmers after turning over the farm to their heirs.Save this picture!© Sebastian SchelsThe traditional Innviertel farmhouse consists of buildings arranged in a square around the farmyard, mostly skirted by “soft” edges due to its location amidst orchards and outhouses. House D’s design is based on the idea of taking up the farmyard theme on a smaller scale and to create a more austere and compact basic form with an open area planned for private use.Save this picture!© Sebastian SchelsIn response to the hillside situation, the entrance to the house from the street, garage, storage rooms and cloakroom, and a guestroom, are all on the ground floor, which is built into the hillside. From there, a flight of stairs leading to the upper floor provides direct access to the open-plan kitchen and a living area that opens up on the inner courtyard, thus facing south. Linked to the living area, the L-shaped western wing of the building offers two bedrooms, a bathroom, a utility room and a walk in wardrobe.

It is divided into different zones: the seating area beneath the cantilevered roof, vegetable garden and lawn all contribute to a diverse and compact outer area that offers a variety of uses.Save this picture!© Sebastian SchelsThe house consists of a laminated timber construction that is visible in the interior and that rests on a reinforced concrete basement floor. Façades made of untreated fir wood, as used for traditional agricultural buildings, form rather quiet, almost closed areas. Only those facing the inner courtyard are glazed in dark grey. By contrast, the white door and window frames rhythmically enliven the outer walls in the courtyard area.

Simple, solid oak furniture that is partially integrated into the room’s configuration, including a kitchen developed together with artist Hans Rainer, who also installed a tiled stove “floating” on a black steel plate, give the house both a minimalist style and homely character.
