PROJECT A01 designed this spacious luxury mansion in the open countryside overlooking a green valley near Vienna, Austria. The building in situated on a slope overlooking the valley. The ground floor consists of several levels that divide the loft-like living space into various functional areas. A gallery provides access to the library, the guest quarters and the children’s rooms. The master bedroom is located on a further level, half a floor above.
The ground floor consists of several levels also following the downward slope. These levels divide the lavish loft-like living space into various functional areas, such as the fireplace and the lounge area. The kitchen as well as the dining area- and breakfast terrace are likewise connected to the main living space.
The surfaces on the ground floor are made of stone and wood, whereas the upper level has been given a special coating, creating a smooth white box. The garage and the technical rooms, as well as the fitness room, are located in the basement. An underwater window in the fitness room creates interesting insights and lighting situations in the basement.
A large glass roof, spanning almost 10 m², can be opened above the gallery and the living room thereby creating a kind of interior patio. The roof was also designed as a smooth white surface, the first of its kind.
Various patios and terraces, as well as a swimming pool, are located around the building and create a seamless connection between the living space indoors and the landscape outdoors. A cantilevered structure is located above the ground floor and houses the private rooms. The steel columns are reduced to a minimum and follow the structural system.
A cantilevered box “floats” above the ground floor and houses some private rooms. Steel columns are reduced to a minimum and follow the structural system. The base of the building roughly follows the incline of the slope and is slightly terraced itself. The ground floor is open in all directions and creates a seamless connection between the living space indoors and the landscape outdoors.
