Parkpraxis by X Architekten Blends into Its Natural Surroundings

Parkpraxis by X Architekten is a stunningly atypical doctor's practice. Placed within a park, its mirrored facade reflects its natural surroundings so as to double its beauty while leaving the green area as undisturbed as possible. Interestingly enough, the outside does not reflect in the inside. Strikingly futuristic, the only touch that pays tribute to its location is the old tree that romantically flourishes in the middle of the building.

Located in the centre of the lower Austrian community of Kasten, Parkpraxis by X Architekten may lose its autonomy to its immediate surroundings, but this small sacrifice does more good than harm. As an extension and new interpretation of the green space, Parkpraxis by X Architekten positively enlivens the community’s centre, which is can only be appreciated.
