The current changes in the broad field of architecture are hard to ignore. In the issue “ARCHITECTURE IN TRANSITION?” a much discussed design as well as various realized projects give answers to the questions who builds, how do we build and for whom do we build.

Instead of creating a new home elsewhere, the owners recognized the benefits of their existing building and invested in its future. The decisive step towards a solution: a renovation and extension in the spirit of the original building characteristics of the Vorarlberg townscape.

STAMPFLEHM

We love rammed earth!
Martin Rauch Lehm Ton Erde Studie Wettbewerb Lehmbau

Together with the executing company “Lehm Ton Erde” we have developed a façade study in which we work with tamped concrete in the part in contact with the ground and with rammed clay in the overlying part. Allowing a proven calculated erosion of the clay tamped structure in the facade emphasizes the liveliness and natural origin of the materiality. The constant change of the facade reflects life. The rammed earth building represents a widespread and millennia-old building tradition that was also successfully used in the Swiss Turgau before the industrialization in the 18th century up to three-storey load-bearing.

DUPLEX ON A HILLSIDE

Based on the budget and the desire to create sustainable housing, the decision was made to build a semi-detached house of two entities of 125 square meters and two carports, on an area of around 600 square meters. The challenge to create something beautiful with little resources and with the restriction of the construction site re-quired a carefully planned house up to the furnishings.

GARAGE RENOVATION

To create additional living space, the former garage had to be converted into a separate living unit and it had to be extended. The first floor was extended to the east and the garage received a wooden extension.
