Status: Concept study
The Haus K project is a redesign of a property acquired by the client as a shell. The exceptional location on the Schloßberg in Krems makes this project an absolute jewel with a view of the Danube valley and Göttweig Abbey to the south and the Krems vineyards to the north.
The client's personal needs required an extensive interior redesign of the property. After analysing the requirements, the three levels of the building were restructured. A spacious wellness area with sauna, whirlpool, lounge and fitness area was designed in the basement, which has ground-level access to the garden.
On the floor above, there is an entrance hall that connects the northern main entrance by means of a bridge over the Schloßgraben with the southern entrance, which is only accessible via a footpath up the Schloßberg. The bedroom with attached closet space and master bathroom, as well as a completely self-sufficient guest flat with a south-facing garden terrace are also located on this level.
The upper floor is divided into living and dining area by the central, open staircase with attached fireplace wall. The open-plan kitchen is visually separated from the living area by a wine climate control cabinet located across the staircase.
The colour and material concept mixes elements typical of the region with international style. For example, the terrace floor of raw natural stone slabs is also laid throughout the interior of the entrance level, right into the bathroom and bedroom. Furniture fixtures with dark oiled wooden fronts complement the concept.
The materiality of the upper floor is determined by gradually finer structures. A poured terrazzo floor is used as the floor. Dark coloured glass and a fireplace wall made of large granite slabs complement the dark wooden fronts.
