House P is actually a barn house situated in the mountainous area of southern Austria. Its blueprint is unique in such a way that it combines contemporary with traditional design. Because of this, the homeowner gets to enjoy the best of both worlds.
The main house is separated into four wings. An old existing barn was turned into a garage and storage area. Buildings that were once used as stables were transformed into a pool house and a guest house. Inside, there is generosity of space that looks out to the sprawling countryside.
The richness of House P is found in the details. Materials were carefully chosen, making sure that both function and aesthetics were maximized.
Notes from the Architect:
House P is proverbially an old barn treasure. A farmstead situated on top of a hill bridge within the vineyards of western Styria assembling a main house and four annexes which used to be traditional farm buildings. The main house keeps being the main residential building, while the old barn has been adapted for garage and storage use. And the former stable building as well as the other farm buildings – previously used for the production and storage of wine – are being reused as guest house, pool and wellness house.
