I fell in love instantly. Flag Residence by Propeller Z architecture is one of the boldest additions to an old construction I have ever seen.
The house in Fahndorf, Austria, consists of a 200 year old farmhouse buried in the natural slope, leaving the imperfect grey shingle roof visible. To one end of the roof, the architects added a stunning contemporary living and kitchen space with wooden boarded ceilings and exposed concrete floors, a long crooked box anything but conservative supported on truss pillars and accessed through an external stair at the joint with the old structure. Confidently casual, comes to mind regarding the unpretentious furniture. While two facades are floor to ceiling glass – nothing short of modern, the third is a complete stainless steel clad facade with one narrow window strip – outrageously industrial, and the fourth is a transverse woodstack – outrageously rustic, in a steel context.
