From the architect. The P-K House is oriented north-south and located in a setting in southern Burgenland, which has an agricultural character that has to be preserved.

The approach driveway from the road comes from the north-west and cuts into the terrain. It starts with an embankment on both sides and is then flanked by a retaining wall that, as a building element, rises continuously out of the ground, reaching story height towards the entrance.

On the lower floor (entrance level) the volume of the building is almost completely embedded in the terrain and is revealed as a full storey only at the entrance area. Free-spanning roof slabs near the garage entrance are green roofs. A section of roof slab that is tilted slightly towards the west takes up the incline of the slope, developing a moderate differentiation of heights, and at the same time varying the ceiling heights in the interior.

The upper living level with the private living areas is set completely free. Large areas of glazing, some of them extending the full height of the room, form largely transparent spaces that are bathed in daylight. Generously dimensioned terraces connect to the outdoor space, which in the immediate surroundings of the house is designed as a garden.
