Situated on a steep slope in the centre of Warth in Vorarlberg, Austria, this apartment house blends into the alpine landscape with self-assured simplicity. With its shingle façade it adapts to the townscape, while its crystalline form softens the rigor of the linear architecture and creates interesting visual accents.
Timelessly elegant design can also be found inside the building. The staircase is concrete, but the apartments themselves are completely clad in local wood. Oak floors matched with walls and ceilings of white fir create a warm atmosphere, while the minimalist interior design provides a modern look. The apartments offer wide views of the mountains, including the ski slope and gondolas of the new village railway, which bring the guests directly into the ski area.

Why we like this house
