Architektur Lechner & Lechner

If you want to realize your dream of your own house today, you are usually looking for a lot of space and nature. This project shows that there is another way - in the middle of the old town of Salzburg. The aim is to implement a holistic, modern model of life through an environmentally friendly and sustainable way of life.

For this purpose, an energy-efficient house was built in the middle of Salzburg's old town. Such a project in the World Heritage Site  requires an intensive examination of the location and persistence for development and implementation. The aim was to strengthen the European city and to connect living and working in one place.

The focus is on efficient use, functionality and comfort: "Everything you can dream of". In this way, the workplace, living space and leisure area are brought under one roof on several levels. But above all, the house tries to guarantee autonomy

in terms of energy and leisure quality. Around 35 m2 of photovoltaic system, the panels of which also work with diffuse light due to the lack of all-day tanning, generate more electricity than is required for heating, household appliances and lighting.

With the generated electricity, among other things. A geothermal heat pump is operated, which heats in winter and is also used for cooling in summer. The room temperature is supported by controlled living space ventilation with heat recovery. Instead of fleeing the city, we focus on leisure time in the house in the city: “Feeling comfortable at

home, in the office and in your own garden. The roof terrace incorporates the city into the living space and at the same time functions as a garden in which, among other things, own tomatoes are grown. Planting and harvesting supports the prevailing idea of ​​autonomy and sustainability and supports the quality of life.
