Tragerhaus, HAUS

architecture photography

Tragerhaus sits on a sloping site dramatically stacked in levels arranged around a central staircase. Providing both privacy from the main road, whilst overlooking a golf course, and offering fine views and relationship with its natural setting, the house creates a bold statement and expression of the architects intent. The design by HAUS has recently been nominated for an RIAS award 2019. Entering the building from the street level through a private entrance courtyard, one arrives in a reception space at the top of the main stairwell with access through into a living space within the cantilevered volume overlooking the golf course. A more secluded living space and master bedroom occupies the mezzanine space above. Descending the main stair case to the main living areas, an expansive open planned kitchen, dining and living space creates the heart of the building, with large sliding doors onto an external terraced area. 4 Bedrooms are arranged on the bottom floor with access off the main stair atrium. Photographing this building and discovering the key views around the building, my brief was to capture the sculptural relationship the building has within the site along with its connection and relationship with the outdoors.
