This house sits near the town Krumbach in the Austrian countryside. It was designed by Bernado Bader Architects who used locally sourced elm, spruce and fir in the construction. 60 trees were strategically used in the finishes, structure and even the furniture, a highlight of this efficient design project.
The use of wood and concrete are not only efficient building materials, but they compliment each other visually in the architecture of this residence. The minimalist design take a step back while allowing for opportunities of the changing landscape to fill the interiors through the large windows and intersecting deck. The essence of the Austrian countryside vernacular architecture in terms of the proportion of the volume within and its connection to the expansive landscape makes this an incredibly desirable rural escape for the summer.
