The estate of Gut Wagram, located in the Weinviertel in Lower Austria, demonstrates that the expertise of the architecture and design studio Destilat in terms of layout extends far beyond the interior…
From the cladding to the design of the squares, including the orientation of the paths and even the planting plan of the castle garden (in collaboration with a landscape designer): all of Destilat's art is exploited here.
It is on an area of 4000 m² that Destilat carried out this renovation. The land includes commercial premises, a residential building and a bathhouse, which have been redeveloped from scratch and then supplemented with new buildings due to the dilapidated state of the original structures. The exterior of the two-story residential building exudes old-world charm, and the interior of the house has been completely remodeled.
The main staircase has been “turned upside down” and fitted with a banister inspired by an accurate historical design. The revitalization of the property has been carried out using authentic building materials and using artisan techniques.
The stone floor is made of tumbled travertine tiles; the walls and ceilings are painted using the traditional brushstroke technique; acoustic ceilings have been hidden under the historic structure's tons of stucco, and the original coffered windows have been restored.
In addition, Destilat has developed a complete lighting system in order to illuminate all the spaces as well as possible, from the cross vault of the wellness area to the newly fitted attic.
