Located on a mountain overlooking Bregenz, House D′s open floorplans and generous glazing allow for magnificent views over the surrounding countryside and Lake Constance. Designed by architects Dietrich Untertrifaller, the home is stratified into three stories, with the entrance and utilities located on the first floor, guest and children′s rooms on the second floor alongside a master bedroom, and an open layout with living room, kitchen and dining spaces on the third. In order to strengthen the connection to the natural environment, the third floor also boasts a patio which wraps around the entirety of the building.
The geometric form of the home, combined with the architect′s decision to construct with concrete and wood, create a powerful building that seems to blend into the surrounding landscape. Furthermore, the attention to detail highlights the craftsmanship for which this region of Austria has become famous.
