Story:

Text provided by the architect:

Above the city, nestled in the southern sunny vineyards of Vienna sits the newest Caramel project - House Rock.

On one hand, it rises like an eagle's nest from the allotment neighbourhood, allowing its residents possibly one of the best views from their bathtub into the surrounding hills of the Vienna Woods. On the other hand, House Rock blends into the hillside, its street-side closure contrasting with the extroversion of the tower-like lookout and the almost complete opening towards the west-facing terrace and pool. Caramel's snow-white artificial stone facade at House Rock contrasts with the surrounding allotment houses, some of which are cheerfully colorful, in a winking manner. At the same time, the smooth, white acrylic stone acts as a projection surface for the shadow play of the surrounding trees. The client's wish for high-quality materials was met discreetly and unpretentiously. Cast and polished Danube pebble terrazzo on the first floor and in the bathroom, white artificial stone on the facade, real wood oak planks and an opening glass facade 12 meters long make House Rock a real luxury piece. House Rock is one of their few, as Caramel likes to call it with a smile, “red carpet” buildings, they occasionally build. Sometimes it just has to be a little more - without showing off.
