House F – Wieselburg, Lower Austria, Austria
The building contractor’s special affinity to the massive mountain, Ötscher, the wish for a compact room design on one floor and the idea of a roof with a large overhang that blends into the landscape, but in addition, becomes part of the interior, were a design requirement for this house situated at the edge of the town of Wieselburg.
The roof that will be constructed is going to have many valleys made of solid wood. Through its irregular shape, the roof becomes the topography and room design.
The prefabricated building structure consists of surface elements exactly placed in a room structure of glued, laminated timber frame. The constructive glued, laminated timber ceiling has thus far not been installed in this geometry. They require the highest assembly precision from the contractor, Weißenseer Holzbau,
A one-of-a-kind long piece of furniture takes on the secondary function of the home. It is used as a multi-functional design tool, it is stacked, suspended, and within reach for all that is necessary and needs to be serviced from the kitchen, the entry hall, the bathroom, and the bedroom. Therefore, the living room is largely free of any shelves and closets; moreover, the available wall space can be used for large-size glazing on the south side at room height expanding the view on sunny days all the way to the Ötscher.
