S residence

Bocksdorf / Burgenland


A farmhouse, consisting of a main building in heavyweight construction and a shed in wood construction, stands on a gently sloped hillside. A new, largely prefabricated wood structure replaces the shed. The building is positioned crosswise to the slope and bisects the long site at its narrowest spot; covered terraces front the building on all four sides. The wood construction of this new building corresponds to that of the nearby B-B Residence. The removal of the roof from the existing main building creates a further large terrace with vistas of the surrounding landscape – a supplement to the existing and newly introduced low-slung massing.
