House Of Yards / Marte Marte Architects

House Of Yards by Marte Marte Architects

House Of Yards is a raw concrete house designed by Austrian studio Marte Marte Architects. Despite its footprint of 38 x 19 m the “House of Yards” has a very light, delicate touch. The rectangular-shaped house with its soft wooden core was built into a slope, on a site overlooking the Rhine Valley.

Due to two closed facades it has a hermetical appearance from the street. The two other sides open up to the landscape. Two frameless windows and two breakthroughs interrupt the facade to draw the view over the valley as far as the Swiss mountains. Four patios resp. courtyards bring the additional light deep into the house and give the project its name. The biggest one holds a pool and is, so to speak, the sun deck. Kitchen, bedroom and living space are all on one level. The lower floor contains guest rooms (for the adult children), laundry facilities and a wine cellar.
