Rock&Rose

Geistlweg Architektur as Architects

The private residence „Rock&Rose“is located in place of the former foresters lounge „Rosen“. At over 1000m above sea level, one has an extensive view of southern Pongau.


Local slates are themed as the plinth, while two boulders support the central building spanning between them. The entrance as well as parking space for three cars is located between these “rocks”. Like a hand, the central space envelopes the building and leads to the open living area with a luxurious 3.20m ceiling up front. From here one has unobstructed access to the 100m2 terrace, which leads to the southern pool.


Further back three bedrooms with integrated bathes are located. The green roof can be reached by the outer stair, which is planted with roses and reminds of the original foresters lounge. The theme of roses was also explored in earlier facade studies. The variation involving printed glass however was decidedly cost-prohibitive.
