Kitzbühel Residence (Austria)

To create a modern home in Kitzbühel, Austria, built around a grand staircase and the owners art collection. The mountain views around the house were to become part of the art experience of the house.

Local building and zoning codes are very defining of what can be built. Design proportions, materials, methods of construction and cultural expressions of design were required.

A home designed that, when finished, will have cultural significance. One can say of this home that it would have been an appropriate cultural design even a hundred years ago, had the technologies and building materials of today been available then.
