The recently completed residence pfarrmessner is situated at the southern outskirts of the city of sterzing, at approximately 950 meter above sea level. The building, which is generally orientated east and westwards, is separated into four stories, while each one of the four apartments develops differently through and on these floors. Projected as a building of solid construction, it features a concrete bearing structure with an insulated plaster façade. While the interior layout describes an outmost individual character, the building itself rather appears to be homogenous, even monolithic, emphasised by its uniform porphyry-red colouration. The colour of the building’s façade has been aligned to the natural environment, with its regional and commonly occurring porphyry. Therefore aggregates of this particular stone were added to the concrete, all surfaces sluiced-out afterwards. For the outer surface, a specific spatula-technique was employed, applying solely organic, fine-grain modelling plaster. All metal surfaces at the façade on the other hand have exclusively been powder-coated with the same colour hue. Every apartment has, hence the rough climate in this region, also sheltered exteriors in the shape of loggias. A cosy and comfortable interior climate is provided by an ecological insulation, as well as insulating glass with thermal-segregated window profiles and automatic ventilation with an energy recovery system.
