Günther Domenig`s Steinhaus in Steindorf

There are few architects in the world that can work outside the boundaries of reality - and then proceed to get his revolutionary vision realized in the way Gunther Domenig has done with Steinhaus. No other residence has combined such a seemingly violent convergence of form with an ultra-harmonious connection to the site. - Ecomanta

Domenig's own house, the 'Steinhaus' at Lake Ossiach, a lake near Klagenfurt, became a personal manifesto. Over the many years of its construction, it was both an outlet for his technical and formal experimentation, and a focus for his architectural aspirations. The Steinhaus has become a cultural icon, having hosted concerts, been the subject of television and art projects, and having featured in many books and magazines.
