Beautiful Home Located at the Foot of the Alps: House Haller

House Haller was designed by Haller Jürgen together with Peter Plattner and is located in Mellau, Austria. According to the architects, “the owner’s specifications were a house combining living and working areas under one roof. The entire design of this compact house conforms to the location and it was built into the slight decline. As the hill side of the house is embedded, the east facing cellar area could be naturally illuminated and used as an office, for example. This office has direct access, via covered outdoor steps between the main entrance and the carport. Due to its ideal positioning, the building profits from the optimal use of the mountain sunshine. In spite of being highly original and very chunky, looking almost fortified, the building does not appear out-of-place in its surroundings. The nearby 150 year old, heritage-protected, typical Bregenzerwald farmhouse is reflected in the Haller house.” We were delighted by this home’s interior design, featuring minimalist arrangements and an overall warm and inviting atmosphere.
