Where form meets function

We take a look at the modern Haus Ruscher in the Austrian woodlands by local studio Olkruf. The quaint home is segmented into two separate cubic structures: The larger serves as the main living quarters while the smaller is an inviting guest home with a sauna and shower room. The outer facade of each building is made from a single piece of casted concrete, which was the home’s largest design hurdle.

The interior features a combination of smooth exposed concrete and elm wood paneling that also cover the floors, retaining both an industrial and organic feel. Large windows open up to the beautiful surrounding pasture and mountainscape. See the structure in the gallery above.
