Vintage retreat: Designing for work-life balance

27 : 08 : 2012 Wine : Home Factory : Rural

Burgenland, Austria – Vienna-based architecture practice Judith Benzer has created a multi-purpose summer dwelling for a pair of wine-making retirees.

The structure, called the Summer House, is situated on top of a hill in southern Burgenland and is inspired by the traditional rural homes dotted around the local area. The building is divided into two levels. The upper is the living area while the lower level has space for small-scale wine production and storage.

This is a great example of architecture that blends work with home life. To see more examples of consumers turning their homes into microfactories, read LS:N Global’s Home Factory microtrend.
