Daniel Fügenschuh completes new family home in Innsbruck 

The Bodner House is adjacent to the Botanical Garden of Innsbruck, Austria on a south-facing plateau overlooking the city of Innsbruck. Large glazing elements are cut out of the otherwise monolithically designed solitaire in the least obtrusive manner. The minimalist facades show singularly positioned windows placed flush with the rendered façade. The building has been constructed in a single layer block work, which reaches Austria’s low-energy-standard. Local conglomerate stone has been used for exterior walls in the garden as a reference to numerous buildings in the rest of the city.

The 3.25 metre high living room is level with the garden. On the first floor three rooms and a bathroom for the kids are situated around the central extra-wide corridor that is fully glazed giving views to a skyline of a mountainchain. The top level is the parents' penthouse profiting from a large roof terrace. The solid timber staircase fixed only on the side to the fairfaced concrete wall changes direction on the upper level and takes you on a path through the house.
