Mountain House by Gangoly & Kristiner Architekten

Gangoly & Kristiner Architekten designed this stunning mountain retreat situated in Ausseerland, Austria, in 2017. Take a look at the complete story after the jump.

From the architects: A specific approach to the building tradition and a special respect for the landscape characterize the building in Ausseerland. To combine this particular atmosphere with the ideas of a timeless, comfortable home for family and guests was a challenge.


The cross-shaped ground plan creates a connection to regional models, defines the views of the lake and the mountains, and simultaneously creates spatial zoning. Wood as the material of the panel is in the foreground. Used on the outside as a pre-grayed cover, it creates a warming atmosphere on the inside in combination with exposed concrete and brass elements, without a rustic finish.
