Gugl Mugl Südhäuser
Two Duplex Houses in Zaunerweg
Office Arch. Dipl. Ing. Fritz Matzinger Type New construction Role Schematic design and variations Size 600 m² Location Linz, Austria Year 1997
These duplex houses – built in tandem with a much larger housing project – are symmetrical but offset by one floor to accommodate the slope of the site. My responsibilities included massing, iterative schematic designs, elevations, and the interior planning of the units. The design was then further developed by the architect, Fritz Matzinger, and eventually constructed in 1999. The building on the left largely conforms to the original schematic design, while the fenestration and composition of the façade of the building on the right were redesigned for the respective owners of the units by an outside designer.
