The Flag House addition by Propeller Z

By • Jan 12, 2011

Vienna-based architectural firm Propeller Z has completed an addition to a 200 year old farmhouse in Fahndorf, Austria.

Within a budget of 70,000 euros, Propeller Z succeed to build an amazing contemporary addition (590 sq ft) including a kitchen and living space.

Attached to one of the farm’s U-shaped arms, the new dwelling sits elevated on the terrain, opening completely with floor-to-ceiling glass.
