Cherry Household / STEINBAUER architektur+layout + Kaltenbacher ARCHITEKTUR
Textual content description delivered by the architects. An elongated wood framework with a longitudinal pitched roof, resting on a reliable basement defines the lowered overall look of the home. Found in a little agricultural village of only 29 inhabitants, the residence is now residence to a household of 4 long run people of Weibnitz around Neunkirchen in Lower Austria. The family members-owned hillside home is found on the southern edge of the village and is characterized by the name-supplying cherry tree that was planted a long time ago. The spot impresses with its excellent check out of the mountain massif of the Rax-Schneeberg group and the close by spruce forests, which border the property to the west.
“The layout was based mostly on the archetype of an elongated construction with a sloping roof. The openings are deliberately preferred incisions with a look at of the adjacent forests, the mountain backdrop, and the cherry tree.” The black-framed entrance is positioned at the degree of the authentic site and available by a blasted concrete staircase.
The glazed entrance on the east is reflected in the exact axis to the west as an exit to the backyard garden. The continuously designed floor approach is arranged together an open gable in the central axis. The kitchen window, which operates the length of the kitchen and is positioned at the worktop, frames the see of the mountains and forests like a painting on the wall. The toilet and the sleeping place are dealing with the personal garden and the children’s place is placed less than the cover of the cherry tree.
The exterior visual appeal is characterized by a dim and band-sawn spruce facade. Boards linked by tongue and groove give the building a restrained, straightforward, and reduced glance. The window frames and the roof floor are also subdued in conditions of coloration and create the essential distinction with their matt black overall look. Every opening in the construction was deliberately picked out, such as the square opening with a deep seat parapet beneath the cherry tree. The inside contrasts with the dim exterior, finely tuned materials these types of as the natural way oiled spruce windows and brushed oak parquet.
