Re_novation & Extention
"Gingerbread House & Landscape Inhaler"
A building from the 1950’s,
originating in the style of an old picturesque farmhouse, should be adapted
to the desires of the new inhabitants and be extended. Since
the property is located in the country scape (Freiland) of Graz, we were
allowed to exactly double the existing living space in m2 from the old
to the romantic
introverted farmhouse - the so called Gingerbread
House - an extroverted Landscape Inhaler was added , Two very different
living conditions could be created.
the Landscape Inhaler, the existing landscape replaces the landscape paintings
on the walls. Depending on the season and the time of day, the existing
landscape transforms the all around glas-walls (half part) and the "no-walls"
(other half part) into different moods of images again and again.
