The Prachenskyhof is one of the most modern buildings in in Geigenbühel – the most beautiful part of Seefeld in Tyrol.

Built in 1969 by the well-known Tyrolean architect and artist Michael Prachensky, the house impresses with a harmonious blend of modern materials, bright, light-flooded rooms, and traditional wooden elements. Michael and his son, Alexander, still live and work in the house, and the walls are a gallery of their work.
The atmospheric and unique ambience of the house is enhanced by its excellent location away from the hustle and bustle, but just a few minutes' walk from the town centre.

Prachensky’s first work was the Prachenskyhof in Seefeld, in which he was able to use the “Stuttgart School” philosophy of cross-storey penetrations for the first time.

Built in 1969, the Prachenskyhof in Seefeld is the first work by architect DI Michael Prachensky. He was able to use the philosophy of cross-storey penetrations for the first time in this building. Modern materials and antique wooden components (in the rooms and ceilings) combine and complement each other, to create a harmonious look.

The Prachenskys have long been a household name in Tyrol. Known as lateral thinkers, inventors and visionaries, they left clear traces in architecture, painting and other art forms such as photography, film or graphic design. On the occasion of the 100th birthday of Hubert Prachensky, the Archive for Architecture of the University organized a two-week anniversary exhibition in 2016, which was then shown for three weeks in the Innsbruck gallery on Claudiaplatz. There, the individual family members and their works over five generations from the years 1862 to 2016 were presented.

From Josef to Theodor, Wilhelm Nicolaus, Hubert, Manfred and Markus to the current artists Michael, Alexander, Andreas and Mathias, the work show shows a certain consensus in their style and expression despite the individuality of each family member. Dr. Christoph Hölz ​​from the Archive for Architecture speaks of the “sheer exuberant creativity” of the artist family. With greetings from Governor Günther Platter and Herwig van Staa, the bound collection leads you through the world of the family and makes your life's work unforgettable.

Some of the Prachenskys have left clearly visible traces in Tyrol and the state capital in the form of remarkable buildings and artistic images, graphics and visions.

Hot off the presses from the press, the catalog presents the exhibition in 2016 on the family of artists Prachensky in a bright red.
