In keeping with the white purist exterior, the interior is also reduced and timeless: few natural shades and high-quality materials such as the sand-colored stone floor, walnut furniture and cocgnac-coloured Chesterfield leather sofas give the rooms their structure, character and warmth. The kitchen fits in, in plain white with a few dark gray details. A chandelier above the dining table sets a playful accent.
Project Name: Villa Schatzlmayr
Architect Name: Philipp Architekten BDA
Behind a wall of narrow, fine wooden slats hide the main entrance door, a cloakroom, a sliding door to the atelier and access to the underground car park and the basement: the basement level compensates the height level between the street and the sloping plot, so that the villa appears as single storey. Downstairs, next to the technical and utility rooms, is the underground car park with several parking spaces. The landlord is a passionate collector of fast cars and motorcycles. Down here, where the unique landscape with its seasons can no longer be dominant, the deliberately colorful color concept in contrast to the otherwise timeless restrained design of the building is a surprise: warm orange and a powerful pink loosen up the atmosphere.
This playfulness, wit and irony can also be found in the two-storeyed guest toilet with a skylight, which is completely in pink. The first visitors were already reported missing because they were so overwhelmed when they entered the „quiet place“ that they wanted to share with the world their experience via social media.
All in all, Villa Schatzlmayr is tailor-made architecture that is entirely aimed at offering nature a large stage: the glass front set across the entire length of the ensemble opens up the living space to the surroundings and the sky: depending on the season and the time of day the hosts are provided with a fascinating and also sometimes a dramatic play of light and color, which in their own words, they can never get enough of.
