competition, 1st prize
Bärnbach / Styria
The basic structure of the complex is two-storey, the amount of outdoor space increases in proportion to the size of the apartment. The small apartment, which has a greater building depth, has the smallest garden.
The medium-sized apartment is two-storey and has a larger garden thanks to the reduced building depth. The largest apartment has an identical ground floor to the medium-sized dwelling. On the upper level it extends beyond the small apartment and as a result has an additional terrace above the (deep) small apartment.
The apartments in the two-storey plinth can be read through the various projections and recesses, in the flats above they are legible thanks to the line of the roof: a main beam in the roof ridge crosses each apartment diagonally.
