The Austrian architectural firm Dietrich/Untertrifaller is a representative of the Neue Vorarlberger Bauschule, which pursues a sustainable building style as well as the harmonious integration of buildings in their surroundings. The architects of Dietrich/Untertrifaller designed one of their unique spatial concepts made of wood for the Altstadt Vienna.
The modest, dark grain of the wooden paneled wall has an organic feel to it. A cunning glass-detail connects the bathroom with the outer world and reveals the tower of St. Ulrichs church on the opposite side while standing in the shower. Dietrich/Untertrifaller’s unique style can be found all over town. They were appointed with the general renovation of the Volkstheater, constructed buildings on the Naschmarkt and created another event hall for the Wiener Stadthalle.
In a similar manner the architect Adolf Krischanitz channels art and nature with a wodden wall made from oak in his room creation #64.
