Destilat Architecture  updated this woodland residence in Austria with a modern renovation that features cantilevered volumes set at different heights. The home sits on the bank of the Danube river, surrounded by woods and orchards. The renovation  was designed to maximize views out over the foothills of the alps, and the project incorporates an exposed concrete pool cantilevered  over a supporting stone wall to create a terraced garden.
The facade of the 3M House is composed of medium-layer stone render made from a combination of stone, grains, sand, limestone, and ceramic. This material contrasts with the exposed concrete of the interior, lending the exterior a natural, earthy quality that blends with the surrounding environment.
The undersides of the cantilevered roofs are formed using pine boards, and the different levels of the floors reflect the varying ceiling heights on each floor. The courtyard faces a monolithic facade, and the southern side of the residence looks onto a floating terrace.
