Bad Radkesburg

In Austria and generally in northern countries, the pitched roof has always been a characteristic element of a house. This fifth facade is considered important as much as the other facades, especially in historical city centers. In these cities, like Bad Radkersburg, the shape and the material of a roof is significant for the overall effect of an intact historical roof landscape. However in modern days there is an increasing need of new building spaces specially in historical cities. In orther to limit the excessive expansion of the cities and obviate the lack of new spaces, the use of the attics is more likely seen as a possible solution for gaining additional rooms without compromising the overall shape of the buildings. More than 80% of the houses in Austria are characterized by a pitched roof. And the underlying rooms are always more often used as a haven or oasis of wellness, or as a hobby space or guestroom. see here the explanation of the pilot action:
