Designed y x Architekten, the existing building from the 1920s proved itself valuable to the client mainly due to the surrounding garden landscape. Nevertheless, there was the aim to create more space and living quality which was to be realised through revitalisation and extension. The client’s main wishes were the adaptation of the existing building to modern energy standards, a clearer and richer living space, the greatest possible view of the surrounding nature and the integration of garden and terrace areas into the living space and environment.
The house is embedded in a rural settlement area on the southern border of the city Linz. Due to the growth of the city over the years, the residential area containing family homes that have a garden slowly became part of the urban area. Coming home to rural outdoor areas of the city, driving towards the house, parking and getting out of the car, entering the house. Every day, people take these “steps of transition” from the public to the private sphere, from the interior to the exterior.
