Proving that prefabricated buildings can go hand in hand with high-level and unique residential designs, studio F. A. Porsche, and Kärnten-based timber construction expert Griffner have created the “Floating House”

“The Floating House combines visionary design with forward-looking architecture and promises the last word in a healthy living environment,” said Griffner’s owner, Georg C. Niedersüß. The manufacturer of prefabricated structures uses only authentic, sustainable materials of the highest quality, such as glass and regionally sourced timber.

The consistent design philosophy is also reflected in the bathrooms, fitted out with the Duravit Qatego bathroom range, also designed by Studio F. A. Porsche.


Bathroom ensemble in a class of its own

A full-length glass door skillfully connects the light and airy master bathroom with the main bedroom. Marbled wall tiles and light wooden floors underscore the natural and calm ambience. The elegant washing-area solution from the Qatego series offers generous storage space thanks to the above-counter basin’s gentle shape and the vanity unit’s practical niche. The L-Cube series mirrors ensure optimum illumination, while the Wave faucet range and the Starck T accessories round off the washing area and create space for individual options.

Unmistakable Porsche design language

Continuous façade strips, along with black glass tiles surrounding the entire ground floor, epitomize the sophisticated aesthetics of the Floating House. As is typical for Studio F. A. Porsche’s focus is on functionality: a continuous light strip between the floors provides illumination, for instance, and gives the building the impression that it is floating. “For us, design is never just about aesthetics, but also always substance,” explained Thomas Hüttel, the studio’s design director. A range of design objects designed by Studio F. A. Porsche lends a finishing touch to the interior of the house and completes the overall impression of a thoroughly modern structure.
