house e by Caramel Architekten
Located on the periphery of the city, the plot of land offers a spectacular view of Linz, as long as one builds high enough to be able to gaze over the neighbouring properties. That is why the ground storey lies about 6m above street level – with the pleasant side-effect of allowing the garden area to adjoin the living area on the same level to the west and north, despite the extreme slope.

Caramel Architekten – Latest Design

500 sqm House, Vienna, Austria

500 sqm House
A family with one child and maybe more to come dreams of moving from their apartment in the middle of the city to a house at the periphery with plenty of green. They envision children playing in the grass, the parents and their friends sitting amongst them, and all around nothing but green, trees, pure nature. The purchased property is a 500-square-meter plot, a grassy meadow with trees.

Am Krautgarten Vienna, Austria

Am Krautgarten Vienna
From an urban development perspective the site is located in a very heterogeneous environment. the corner of the building facing the public traffic area assimilates the main directions of the adjacent buildings. a green zone is produced along the street as a buffer between public and private space.

AMI Fair Stand
The AMI Booth – Agrolinz Melamine International, a reusable trade fair booth; designed for K04 in Düsseldorf, October 2004. Concept: with the aim of counteracting the hectic bustle and over-stimulation one finds in the exhibition setting, a “space inside a space” was created, which by virtue of its colors and acoustic properties radiates tranquility and safety and encourages visitors to linger.

The federal school complex, “bundesschulzentrum krems”, which comprises a hotel management school with its own school hotel (“europaschule krems”) and an A- and B-track business high school, was built in the seventies according to the modern functional standards of the time. Due to a serious shortage of space an open, EU-wide, two-stage competition was held in 2001.

A new challenge every time – each project is a new challenge – this is our motto at Caramel architects.

Caramel relies on its successful participation in international architecture competitions and is often awarded contracts and commissions – including its most recent construction projects.

Besides the realization of large projects like Science Park Linz, adidas world of sports west Herzogenaurach, WIFI-Dornbirn, Operation Workshop Building Ansfelden, and Federal School Centre Krems the trio’s members apply themselves to design studies and innovative single family house projects. Idealism and inventive talent play a major role in their designs.

Caramel’s lecture series, courses, and art projects like the contribution for the Austrian pavilion at the architecture biennale 2016 in Venice are the salt in the soup of everyday architectural life.
