‘bath house’ by peter jungmann, weissensee, austria

on the picturesque image of lake weissensee in southern austria, a cloister of pristine wooden homes and apartments as part of the alte saege
recreational resort built in 2007, winning several awards in the proceeding years. just recently, architect peter jungmann crowned the complex
with the ‘bath house’ located on the water’s edge as a satellite structure to the rest of the residences. the timber construction is seemingly erected
from the weathered wooden dock extending activities over the water’s surface. immaculate connections add to the structure’s clean lines emphasized
by subtle metal purlins framing the inset sliding glass doors and lakeside glazed facade.

the following apartments are found just west of the bath house featuring a similar wood treatment native to the area, and bright interior spaces with
darker metal elements such as the fireplace core. a mixture of vintage-style and contemporary fixtures add a dynamic character attractive to the
wide range of inhabitants that may reside in the homes during vacations. many openings on each level offer views over the picturesque landscape
supplemented with large skylights and various room sizes that accommodate all group sizes.
