Rooftop Extension by Fadd Architects

Three amazing rooftop apartments designed in 2015 by Fadd Architects, located in Vienna, Austria.

Description by Fadd Architects

This rooftop extension gave us the possibility to create 3 apartments with different size, 190/170/90mq, and 2 terraces with swimming pool. The interior of these penthouses, in one of the most attractive districts of Vienna, combines classic and modern design, respecting the artistic value of the historical context. For this project, we were responsible for the creative direction and interior project manager, working with local artisans to design bespoke furniture.

The main goal was to reach a sophisticated design, for a luxury real estate market, and to give the simple touch of the “made in Italy”. For that reason we went for brands like Varenna Poliform for the kitchen and Gloster for the outdoor furniture; this gave a distinctly Italian flavor to the whole scheme. White walls and chevron oak parquet, minimal lines for the furniture, wood and concrete materials for the fireplace, have helped us to create the right atmosphere. The terrace with teak floor, outdoor kitchen, and pool, give the final touch for taking the best of spring and summer.

We also worked with an Italian greenhouse and used Atelier Vierkant for the vases, to create what a terrace should never miss: the green.

The gray oak wood panels we used for the kitchen facade were also used for the doors of the bespoke fireplace and to hide the door of the staircase (see top 13). This solution combines with a unique design the living and the kitchen area and integrates them into one open space.
