Maximizing Views with Minimal Environmental Impact: House Ufogel in Austria | sustainable architecture | Scoop.it

This Austrian house Ufogel is a functional home set on a hillside overlooking some of the best mountain views in the area, blending the comforts of a traditional house with the futurism of contemporary design. It is set on stilts to maximize spectacular views while minimizing the environmental impact of its construction. Windows, both small and large, provide light to every part of the building without sacrificing personal privacy, a consideration that’s often missed in the design of compact houses. The interior of the house is fairly minimal in style, dominated by a single wood finish and accented by clever little details in each room.
