Reconstruction Transforms A House Into A Dream Home
Atelier Heiss Architects were the ones who were busy with reconstructing the house by adding a modern extension to an existing house in Vienna, Austria. Named House S, the contemporary villa was reconstructed, but keeps a low profile. Only those allowed in the back and inside can fully understand why this house is considered by its owners as a dream home. According to the architects, “a drastic reconstruction preserving only the facade facing the street created a symbiosis of restraint and generosity. While the conventional design of the house on the outside seems almost anonymous, the open structure towards the garden speaks a modern architectural language.” A mature tree rises from the house’s deck, displaying the carefully studied architecture that allows the surroundings to coexist with the structure’s modern design. Atelier Heiss Architects created a glazed backside, encouraging the inhabitants to stay visually connected to the environment.
