House S Schlins / Jury Troy Architects

Architecture studio Juri Troy has designed this eco-friendly timber house as a family home in rural Austria. The house uses a larch shingle façade which is meant to melt with the environment as time goes by.

House S Schlins technical information

The larch shingle façade due to its homogeneous aging makes the building gradually disappear in the mountain landscape as years pass by.

Project description by the Architects

The two-story volume with a pitch roof opening south stands well embedded in the slope of Rönsberg. The above placed living area, barrier freely accessible from the north, is extended on two sides with generous terraces, which can be completely closed with room-high sliding panels. The bedrooms positioned south towards the slope let themselves shaded or extended as garden play area in the same way. The larch shingle façade due to its homogeneous aging makes the building gradually disappear in the mountain landscape as years pass by.
