superfuturegroup surrounds floating wooden bungalow with wide veranda in austria

architectural office superfuturegroup designed villa marie, a bungalow-style single family home located in kremsmünster, austria. situated on a south-oriented slope, the layout of the villa is organized around a central living space and the west-facing veranda terrace that connects the living room and garden. all rooms are placed on the same level surrounding the open living area, which is defined by three functional volumes.




superfuturegroup uses the functional walls not only to separate the rooms from the central living space, but also to host activity areas. cutouts in the surfaces provide views through the spaces, connecting them to each other and the surroundings. the three volumes also incorporate other programs in the house including the kitchen area in one volume, the fireplace and seating area in another, and cabinets and storage space in the third. these volumes can be modified as to extend the central living area into two additional rooms. 




the generous veranda connects the main living room with the garden and provides a covered, outdoor social area. a big void floods plenty of natural light into the living rooms and separates the veranda into two covered areas. a huge sliding door opens the main living space to the veranda linking the interiors to the exteriors. 


the wooden bungalow touches the ground on the north and opens up an entrance and service level in the basement. the wooden construction is fully prefabricated and assembled on site, making it a more sustainable and efficient construction process. wood, as the primary material of floor and ceiling, defines the atmosphere in the house and is contrasted by fibre cement boards for the functional cubes. 




the villa’s open and light interiors are further highlighted by the material palette. superfuturegroup decided upon a light wooden flooring and matching ceiling, making the spaces seem illuminated and vast. the functional volumes that separate the central living area are a darker shade of grey, highlighting their unique purpose in the space. the colors and soft textures, along with the open layout enable the bungalow to become a versatile yet highly efficient living space.
