studio HPS-architekten has completed the renovation and residential expansion of an old ‘farmhouse’ in the austrian countryside. the home, altered several times throughout the years, had become a disconnected amalgamation of efforts past. at the project’s onset, the property underwent a thorough appraisal to select the building’s preservation-worthy components.

HPS-architekten retained only the oldest sections of the ‘farmhouse’, with all other existing extensions removed or put through intensive adaptation. the residence’s updated parts are clad with roughly-sawn spruce to visually separate from the original home, but do not cause unnecessary interruption to the surrounding placid landscape.
