Mario Gasser is an architect who has designed a terrace for a villa in Austria. The overall look of the place is extremely modern, with a hovering glass roof covering the terraced section in the backyard.

The glass roof is held up by distinct steel sections, which gives the design an industrial look. According to DesignBoom, "the glass roof hovering over the structure forms space within the environment where occupants can have exterior privacy from their neighbors." While this addition to the villa is small, it still makes a large difference to how the entire piece of architecture looks. The backyard is transformed from a simple space to something more elevated in terms of innovation and notability.
