in a viennese apartment building, austrian architecture studio heri&salli has created five small guest rooms using a bare minimum of necessary intervention. designed for the gegenbauer vinegar brewery, each unit features a large bed constructed using an interlocking lattice of stacked timber beams.

 

in addition to a central sleeping area, surrounding platforms help combine the functions of a guest room – rendering any extra furniture redundant. in order to make the history of the house visible, ceiling and floor surfaces have been exposed, while service pipes and cabling have been left proudly on display. the prevalent use of wood continues in the adjoining bathroom, where all essential hygiene requirements are found, presented in a similarly raw and rational manner.
