villa SK

on a small budget, austrian firm atelier thomas pucher was able to completely transform the 'villa SK' for the owners by merely 
adding an extra component. the unmodified existing house now serves the private functions, bedrooms and bathrooms. two horizontal planes
of red-colored concrete extend the entrance of the original aged structure almost to the end of the property line. full-height glass panes 
envelope the new living room with knotted hardwood flooring, ultimately making the surrounding yard and climate conditions the real 
enclosure of the space.
