Designed by Najjar-Najjar Architects, Villa A, Sharp, clean lines of new residential build is located in Poestling Berg, Austria. The site is accessed from a road behind leading down a hill to the building’s main entrance, covered by an extended cantilever roof structure. On the street side the building facade is closed with natural stonework to provide intimacy towards the street. The other side is entirely open to the panoramic view over the city.
Following the topography of the site the house is partly caved into the ground. The dining area complete with open kitchen is reached by taking a few steps down from the central hall.
Moreover the large scale glazing and the sliding elements blur the internal and external spaces. Bedrooms are located on the upper levels, accessed by stairs which lead to an open gallery. The basement floor is partly carved in the ground allocating fitness and wellness facilities, an office and a playroom for children.
