House P by Frohring Ablinger Architekten
Designed by Frohring Ablinger Architekten, the House P is a contemporary residence with a clean interior with a minimalist mindset. This contemporary home is located above the village center of a small district town in Upper Austria where the client was able to buy a lot in a very unique location. It is unique because it allows the home to offer panoramic views of a nearby historical center as well as the stunning sight of the Alps.
From the architects: “After a small architectural competition, the decision was made in favor of our design, which consistently convinced the client and which has been modified only slightly until completion.
Because of the slope, the single functions of the house (sleeping / living / leisure) could be stacked, which was been a request of the owners from the beginning, without waiving of generous natural lighting and associated with different insights and views. The hospitable family wanted a clear distinction between general, for guests accessible areas and private rooms.
The top floor with the bedrooms of the family holds smaller illumination openings due to the desired privacy. These are placed in order to prevent unwanted insights but nevertheless create fascinating views. On the ground floor with the living areas, wide openings establish differentiated views and each room receives its own unique characteristics and atmosphere. Here is next to the main terrace with access to pool a small, three-sided borders terrace with an open fireplace to relax and “chill out”.
Each floor receives its own ideal orientation in accordance to his functions. This results in staggered parts, whose projections and recesses can be used as a protected outdoor spaces.”
