House without a plot. On a property that was built entirely with garages and storage rooms, the owner, the family Aigner neither bought the plot nor the existing building, but the right to build a house on top of it – completely without any open space, next to the church, right in the medieval center of the old forge community Ybbsitz in Lower Austria. Trust. The owners and the architects had already realized a building project in Ybbsitz together, thereby a solid foundation of trust with the mayor and local authorities already existed. Without long discussions, the unusual shape was adopted and approved. New atop old. Two holiday apartments were built on the existing garage base. The bold wooden structure was completely covered with copper - the metal skin as a reference to the centuries-old forge tradition in the region.
