House in the Alps

Vienna based design collective Mostlikely and architect Mark Neuner wanted to design a building that would be suited to a modern family lifestyle, but also that wouldn’t look out of place amongst the traditional architecture of its locality in Kitzbühel, Austria.

The team modelled this Alpine lodge on the wooden architectural barns of the surrounding mountain village rather than replicating the design of the local houses for shape and appearance, and so came the nickname ‘The Barn’.

The house is a strange mix of concrete and bare wood, and the open framework of the gently sloping roof is so imposing you can’t help but just stop and stare. It really takes your breath away.
