Minimalist House P by Frohring Ablinger Architekten


Wels-based architectural practice, Frohring Ablinger Architekten, has designed the House P project. The minimalist home boasts modern design features, and is located in Austria.

High above the village of a small district town in Upper Austria, the owner bought a plot of land in a unique location. The plot offers splendid panoramic views over the village but also on the Alps.


According to the architects: “After a small architectural competition, the decision was made in favour of our design, which  convinced the client and which was modified slightly at completion stage.

“Because of the slope, the single functions of the house (sleeping/living/leisure) could be stacked, which was a request of the owners from the beginning, without waiving of generous natural lighting and associated with different insights and views. The family wanted a clear distinction between guest areas and private rooms.

Interior design-wise the top floor accommodates the family bedrooms and holds smaller illumination openings due to the desired privacy. These are placed in order to prevent unwanted insights but nevertheless create fascinating views. On the ground floor with the living areas, wide openings establish differentiated views and each room receives its own unique characteristics and atmosphere. This is next to the main terrace with access to a small pool, three-sided borders terrace with an open fireplace to relax.

“Each floor has its own ideal orientation in accordance to his functions. This results in staggered parts, whose projections and recesses can be used as a protected outdoor spaces.”
