Everybody wishes to have their hideout in the woods. The one that blends in with the world surrounded by nature. The one that uses only natural materials coming from local sources, such as wood and stone. Our project of sensitive reconstruction of a chalet in Gerlitzen, Austria, evokes the unique atmosphere of a mountain refuge. The connecting element here is wood and stone, which appear both in the interior and exterior. The chalet is filled with different materials and textures against providing a contemporary yet homely ambiance throughout. In the spirit of tradition, it combines the diversity of natural elements. Wooden ceilings and slate wall tiles inconspicuously connect the interior with the exterior. The modern open plan living area invites guests to sit down on stylish furniture and relax by the fireplace. Thin wooden slats partly cover the building and serve as a protective element to ensure privacy. Despite its modern design, it perfectly identifies with the rural landscape.⁠ Our reconstruction proposal envisages maintaining the mountain character with minimal interference with the exterior of the house. The design respects the local architecture and the surrounding landscape. The building has elements of classical architecture but is not afraid to experiment.
