The property for the Villas 2B project by LOVE architecture is nestled in an idyllic valley on the edge of Graz. The landscape features idyllic rural scenery, meadows, forests and a steep hillside that affords fabulous views of Graz. On this beautiful site, two buildings were built for three generations.
The buildings themselves are designed as viewing platforms in the hillside, which fold together in the form of simple frames. The high point in the frame creates an exciting interior room with different heights and a type of gabled roof – not least as a tribute to the traditional rural style of construction found in the area. Inside, both buildings are designed as open, loft-like, spacious rooms, with all areas being oriented toward the ample terraces.
