The Austria Summer House by Judith Benzer Architektur features a traditional barn concept that has been reinterpreted in a contemporary way. From its wood-clad facade to its simplistic interior, this modern home pays tribute to past architectural traditions.

Located in Burgenland, Austria, this simplistic structure has been modelled after a Kellerstöckel. These wine storage buildings often feature a below-ground concrete cellar with upper residential levels and have been used as inspiration by Vienna-based architect Judith Benzer for this project.

The Austria Summer House by streamlined shutters, the home's window coverings offer protection from the sun during summer months and shelter from the cold during the winter when it is not in use. From its sustainable materiality to its functional design, this contemporary countryside home is a one-of-a-kind.
