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.
