Mirror Houses by Peter Pichler Architecture

Each unit contains a kitchen / living room as well as a bath- and bedroom with big openable skylights to allow natural light and ventilation. The volume opens towards east with a big glass facade that fades with curvilinear lines into the black aluminum shell. Architecture by Peter Pichler Architecture

  The client, who lives in a farmhouse of the 60s on the site, asked us to design a structure for renting out as a luxury holiday units, so guests have their small autonomous apartment and can fully enjoy the experience to live in the middle of nature. The new structure is oriented towards east with their private garden and an autonomous access and parking for their guests. Both units are floating on a base above the ground evoking lightness beside offering better views from their cantilevering terraces to the impressive surrounding landscape. A maximum degree of privacy for both the client and the residing guest should be taken into consideration. Peter Pichler Architecture have completed some holiday rental homes, surrounded by an apple orchard, near Bolzano, Italy. In certain views from the clients garden the old existing farmhouse is mirrored in the new contemporary architecture and is literally blending into it rather then competing against.
