Dietrich Untertrifaller Architects designed the LK Home in the town of Tough, Austria.
The architectural answer phases a play of 2 cubes stacked on leading of each and every other. Their delicate appearance conjures up lightness that contrasts with the dimension as effectively as the decision of materials, “heavy” exposed concrete. This stress among the image of the home and the provoked experience-based knowledge of its “impossibility” induces fascination.
The play with the abstract that inspires the sculptural good quality of the developing is continued in the finishing. Mainly 2 resources are employed: an immaterial white for ceilings and walls and the dark wood of the smoked oak that kinds the floors and is also located in window frames and doors. The entrant quickly sees the spatial layout as it emulates the form of the building on the outdoors. From the entrance at the intersection in between ground floor and the upper story placed in an orthogonal direction a single floor above, a cross-shaped corridor layout can be distinguished on 2 levels. The residing quarters on the ground floor with a view of the backyard are accented by the dining room that projects into the backyard in line with the upper story that juts out of the constructing one particular floor over. The inserted light shaft opens to the office and a lodger flat. The bedrooms in the upper structure supply a panoramic see of the close by lake due to the altitude and the orthogonal twist of the constructing.
