The Royer House, spotted on Architizer is a compact, rectangular shaped home in Austria, entirely designed by the Kienesberger Schröckenfuchs Architektur firm. The house, located in a quiet neighborhood nearby Wels is ideal for a small family in search of adopting a peaceful lifestyle, being fond of simple, yet comfortable design. Finished in 2010, the project implies in addition to the house itself, a stunning interior garden, a green space for relaxation, that completes the plain, non-outstanding front street scenario.
The house has a narrow front entrance with narrow windows, creating a shelter of intimacy for its inhabitants. We can easily say that the Royer House is a surprising, yet contradictory home. Its exterior is wrapped in a plain, minimalistic look, being neither creative nor outstanding. But then, as you seep inside, the landscape is completely transformed. A wide space, flooded by light, with furniture made of beautiful solid natural wood welcomes you in the most warm and homey way possible. The living and kitchen area are connected to the interior garden, offering an amazing view upon the green maze of trees and grass. Large wood framed windows, simple furniture lines, an idyllic garden and a new angle of perception. Comfort has just become more accessible. Would you make this your permanent home?
These days, a building doesnt just have to look good, it should ideally be good for the environment too. A great example of sustainability spliced with style from the past few years is the M&S store at Cheshire Oaks Retail Park in Ellesmere Port, designed by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.
Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts
