The Summer’s family home is located on the edge of a forest on a small plateau above Weiler, outside the village centre at the end of a steep path. Only a handful of farmers settled in the area over the centuries. Following tradition and their common sense, they all used timber to build their farmhouses. The Summer’s new house replaces an old building. The former farm – and farming as such – were abandoned half a century ago. Continue reading Innauer-Matt

Building a house in the picturesque Bregenzerwald valley in Western Austria, on a very steep hill outside the village center, on a quiet road where several homes of varying size and artistic value had been built in recent years on both sides of the road. The Höller House is – and will, for topographical reasons, remain – the last house on the northern side. The assignment was to come up with a new building for this steep, exposed place, only used to herd goats before. A building that would be convincing in its noble simplicity while highlighting the best characteristics of the lot. An additional challenge was the future owner’s request for a private outdoor space.

Most owners use their holiday homes for only a couple of weeks a year, leaving them as empty objects in their respective surrounding for the rest of the time. This is, however, not the case with House on Tschengla, which has become a fully-fledged second home for its owners. Located a mere 30 minute drive from their flat in the Western Austrian town of Feldkirch, it allows them to live in two worlds, between the lively density of a town and the vast solitude of the mountains.

Strubobuob is a shop for all things nice and useful around house and garden, located in a former workshop for the reparation of watering cans and other metal ware in the village of Bezau. To bring the business’s two shops, one for gardening and one for tableware, together from two different locations, we were commissioned with the planning of a Gartenwerkstatt (gardening workshop): an addition to the original, recently renovated main building.

In the Bregenzerwald, an alpine valley in Western Austria, transhumance is still the commonly practised form of farming: Livestock is driven to graze on mountain pastures in the warmer months. The lower ones of these pastures are called Vorsäß while the higher ones, used in the warmest summer months, are called Alpe. Continue reading Innauer-Matt
