Dietrich | Untertrifaller Architekten

The long-stretched, one-storey structure fits perfectly and naturally into the existing ensemble on the banks of the Danube - yet it can redefine the place, recharge it and give it a new unmistakable identity. Floating on the "high-water platform", its subtle elegance radiates far into the river basin and adequately reflects the interplay of longitudinally oriented wood volumes and transversed rural massive buildings.
The gable is slightly tilted and increased, emphasizing the central entrance, which is accessible by ramps. The foyer and the multifunctional sitting room with the front terrace are clearly visible and are upgraded spatially.
The deep vertical wooden lamellas to the Danube reinforce the body and also serve as a shading system to prevent overheating in summer. The roller blinds must only be used at midday, so that a clear view at the water is guaranteed.

Curriculum

Our office, founded in 1994 by Helmut Dietrich and Much Untertrifaller, is one of the iconic agencies of the renowned School of Vorarlberg. Managed by Helmut Dietrich, Much Untertrifaller, Dominik Philipp and Patrick Stremler, it employs an international team of 90 architects working in Austria (Bregenz and Vienna), Switzerland (St. Gallen), France (Paris) and Germany (Munich). We often develop our international projects with the support of local agencies and regional partners. In the past few years, we have realized numerous projects in Austria, France, Germany and Switzerland.
We create our architecture from its respective context – restrained in style with spatial sophistication and demonstrating a finely nuanced materiality. The entire spectrum ranging from large-scale buildings and urban structures through alterations of existing buildings to apartment buildings and single-family homes defies specialization, constantly challenges and inspires creativity and an inquiring mind.
