Found on Architizer his residence is a fascinating modern home that shows us how contemporary materials can enhance the beauty of modern residential designs. The Folded Corten House displays 215 square meters of wide open spaces visually connected to the outside with the help of expansive use of glass both on the walls and on the ceilings. The mesmerizing Corten-cladded residence was designed by Austrian studio X Architekten with offices in Vienna and Linz. By resizing and revamping an existing 1920s residential building, the architects designed a link between the public and private area by folding and cutting a Corten steel panel.

The slightly sloped terrain allowed the architects to use this little detail in constructing a clear line between the addition and the original building, seen in the difference between levels and use of building materials. The client’s brief included several points: modern energy standards, strong visual connection to the surroundings, a clearer living space, and terraces that seamlessly connect the interior spaces to the surrounding landscape. Located on the southern border of the Linz city in Austria, the geometric terraced house is unique in both concept and design. How do you feel about Corten cladding – is it too bold?

The best architects can create designs which will give clients and the public things they didn’t even realise they wanted, and this is especially important when architects are given the difficult brief of creating structures in much-loved, iconic areas.

An example of a huge success is Heneghan Peng Architects’ Giant’s Causeway Visitors’ Centre in Antrim, Northern Ireland. Using the large difference in level across the site, the architects created two folds in the landscape. Bold, but not conflicting with the rather bleak natural environment, these folds draw all the man-made areas together and create one fitting man-made break in the natural landscape. In the words of the architects themselves, There is no longer a building and a landscape, but building becomes landscape and the landscape itself remains spectacular and iconic
