Designed in the Mühlviertel Bauernsacherl style, the original property was built in the local rural vernacular with a half-hip roof and white granite walls. Hammerschmid Pachl Seebacher Architekten’s renovation carefully preserves the building’s character while adding an L-shaped extension that’s both contemporary and complementary. The spruce-clad addition is topped with an asymmetric fibre-cement gabled roof.

The client’s family of four live on one side of the house with three bedrooms on the upper level of the old building that connect to an open-plan communal area with the kitchen, dining room, and living area in the new wing. The client’s mother lives on the lower level of the farmhouse, which was converted into a self-contained apartment with access to a small winter garden. + Hammerschmid Pachl Seebacher Architekten Via Dezeen Images via Hammerschmid Pachl Seebacher Architekten
