Where form meets function

Going against the traditional Austrian architecture of surrounding area, Juri Troy Architects design a rectangular, dark and minimal home for a family in the town of Hohenems. The name of the home, “37M,” refers to the exaggerated length of the structure, which despite its lack of vast space, still provides an open and airy feel as well as views of the picturesque woods and water meadows. Referencing the owner’s background in graphic design, the customizable polyethylene façade runs along neat lines, punctuated by mis-matched rectangular windows. The floor-plan is made up of a series of rooms set off a main corridor, the entire building flooded with light thanks to oversized windows at either end of the structure. Acting as both house and graphic design studio, this unique build challenges our idea of the “family home.”
