Developed to reflect the local landscape and architecture, this striking 530-square-meters detached villa was realised by a Hamburg-based practice, splendid architecture. Clad with recycled Tyrolean wood planks, the two-storey residency is located in the renowned Austrian ski resort, Kitzbühel.
More about the project:
‘Even though the overall architectural formulation and the detailed implementation is very modern, local materials were used as a tribute to the traditional Tyrolean architecture. The architecture actually reflects the atmosphere and the vibrations of the beautiful surrounding landscape.
‘Based on lines of sight, the aimed insertion in the hillside and the specific spatial needs, we planned two wings arranged around a central atrium. The two wings symbolise two pieces of wood chipped by an axe. The central area symbolises the fire.’
