Interesting Minimalist Architecture in a Rural Landscape: Little Black Dress
Designed by X Architekten, the Little Black Dress adornes the rural hillside landscape with a modern, black architecture. The 1,000 square meters property located in Gunskirchen, Austria, allows the minimalist residence to stand out among its neighbors. Reinforced concrete floors protect the building from flooding due to poor soil conditions. Gathered under a classic gable roof, the living spaces on the first floor feature the kitchen, living and dining spaces, while the second floor displays a second living room and the bedroom. The lower level is characterized by white spruce walls with beautiful beams across the ceilings. The second floor adds dynamism to the architecture with its inclined roof shape. A white cladded asymmetric void that shapes a passageway through the house acts as a courtyard, contrasting with the rest of the dark architecture. In your opinion, is this residence a home to be proud of?
