THE TRANSPARENT HOUSE

SINGLE-FAMILY HOME IN TYROL

CATEGORY: NEW CONSTRUCTION
COMPLETION: 2016
LOCATION: SURROUNDINGS OF INNSBRUCK | TYROL | AUSTRIA

VISION

For this family home in Tyrol, transparency was the guiding theme during the planning process. An open atmosphere enables lively interaction between family members. A clear reference to the surrounding nature was also conceived as highly important. Through transparent structures, the residents come into touch with the environment.

REALIZATION

The creation of panoramic views to the stunning alpine scenery that surrounds the house were guiding size, orientation and form of the windows – which in turn determine the shape of the facade. The single-family home features an exceptional transparency that reflects the idea of an open lifestyle and a sensitive interaction with nature.
An open ceiling in the core of the house forms an atrium that connects all floors of the house. The building’s interior is clearly structured into different spheres of life, creating a linear architectural layout. The dynamics of the individual components of space and the circular lines of sight create a certain transparency that characterizes this special single-family home. As a result, a sense of connectedness and harmonious coexistence arises.
