Haus Birkensee is located next to a lake in the south of Vienna. Following the owners wish, Haus Birkensee’s architecture is designed for summer days and holidays.
The design is marked by a wooden deck as a foundation and the roof enclosed by glass surfaces that allow direct access to the outside areas and a view of the lake.
Separated by large sliding doors, a covered and shaded terrace flows into a spacious open living, cooking and eating area. A long shallow stairway leads to the upper floor with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. These are arranged on multiple levels. The master bedroom floats above the meadow, and the two other bedrooms extend through the roof. The arrangement of the volumes lend the roof a wave-like form. The bathroom offers a dreamy view into the sky, watching the clouds passing by.
