Project summary

IBK Multi-House is a multi-generational residence designed around an existing single residence in a historic suburb in Innsbruck, Austria. The project aims to skirt the line between the single dwelling and medium density housing of its context – creating a functional living scenario for 3 generations in its 4 apartments.

Drawing cues from its context and heritage, IBK Multi-House translates the strong, solid base and lighter, shingled upper levels of local farmhouses into an urban context with modern materials, colours and comforts. The result at IBK Multi-House re-writes the rulebook on intergenerational domestic environments in a way that is entirely in accord with modern European living practices yet distilled within the sentimental shell of the existing.

We had a dream of building a small, beautiful home that could work with our family that are all in various phases of life with varying needs. Refresh delivered us with an amazing design, beyond our imaginings.

Throughout the design and building process Refresh maintained exceptional attention to detail and a commitment to a high-quality product. We are the proud owners of an exceptional piece of architecture that has added so much quality and comfort to our lives.

We love the look and feel of our Family-Home – each person who walks past stops and looks and says, “how great”.
