House with Gable by mia2/Architektur

Located on a slope site on the edge of a small settlement in Upper Austria.
The solid timber house with its precisely chosen elements is simple and complex at once. Simplicity comes from the clear structure and proportion of base, ground floor and roof. Complexity comes from spacial variety. At the high part of the slope the ground floor is located half a meter below terrain level which creates a living space embedded by grassland. Downwards the kitchen and living room is given enough space to unfold up to the ridge. The hight picks up the topographic properties in an ideal manner and the slightly elevated position guarantees an excellent view of the mountains.
