Site Size: 5,225 square feet Project Size: 1,104.4 square feet Program: The clients—a family with two children—asked Austrian firm Marte.Marte Architects to build a minimal alpine vacation house. Solution: The architects designed Mountain Cabin, a poured-in-place concrete four-story structure in the Laternser Valley in western Austria, which sits on a sloping ravine near a convent near the edge of a forest. Reminiscent of a medieval fortress, the house is a small monolithic tower with a square floor plan. Irregularly placed windows puncture the thick, rough walls and spaces appear to be carved from a solid block, especially at the midsection
In the picturesque Austrian village of Erl, just east of the German border, where the rugged Alps seem to descend from the heavens to meet the undulating valley below, a striking, angular structure, the Tyrolean Festspielhaus, or Festival Hall, pierces the landscape that inspired it.
Designed by Bernardo Bader Architects, the new cemetery serves the local Muslim community in industrialized western Austria, where the younger descendents of immigrants wanted a community burial place, rather than following the tradition of returning the dead to former homelands.
At the base of lake Constance, Within the picturesque Rhine Delta Nature Conservation Zone of southwestern Austria, a radiant, transparent pavilion celebrates the completion of a small but distinctive marina in the town of Fussach.
