Set among the peaks of the Tennen Mountains of Austria, this cabin has given an old site a new lease of life thanks to Maximilian Eisenköck Architecture and their clients. Prior to their intervention, there was an existing cabin, left abandoned and falling into a state of disrepair, on the plot.
After purchasing the the cabin and the surrounding land, the client and designers had to come up with a plan for sensitively building in the area. The fruits of their labor has since paid off, with the project being completed in 2016. They’ve dubbed the project Leierhof.

The newly-completed Leierhof cabin, now acts as a holiday home for the owners. The design features elements such as a solid stone plinth, a timber-clad facade and a sharp asymmetric roof. There are three story’s in total, giving the home a total floor area of 204-square-meters.
The finished home comes complete with no less than four bedrooms and bathrooms, with a large living room, dining area and kitchen (found on the ground floor). There’s also a cellar that serves as a wellness area, and houses the owners stock of wine.
The interior is finished in pale woods coupled with contemporary fixtures. But it’s the views that steal the show; large windows provide picturesque panoramic views of the surrounding mountain range.
With a special treatment of the timber panels, which got charred on the top layer and fixed on the façade and the roof afterwards, the new building conforms itself harmonious into the surrounding scenery and also pays tribute to the common facades of the old farmhouses. – MEA
