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.

To keep the budget low, Propeller Z, decided to work with local materials: the ceiling and entry platform are clad in warm wood, while floors are made of concrete.

The new addition is insulated with recycled newspaper, and the North facade, skinned with a wood stack that spans entire length of the facade is aesthetically pleasing to the eye, plus it adds an extra layer of insulation and protection.
