Modern Houses: Wooden Retreat
This amazing addition to the modern houses section comes from Lienz, Austria. This house was designed in 2013 by Peter Jungmann. The house is simple and unique, with a great choice of materials that incorporates with grace the magnificent scenery and modern design. The interior design is simple and elegant, using wood as the predominant material of choice, however this is combination gives an cozy and inviting house. Certainly a great place to live.
In the architect’s own words,
“The Ufogel is the creation of an extraordinary and comfortably appointed house made almost entirely of larch wood. The structure takes its name from its form which sometimes bears resemblance to a prehistoric bird and sometimes to an extraterrestrial home, but is always something special. It’s certainly not a standard, off-the-peg house but more of a sculpture to live in, which reveals itself to be a “spatial wonder” the minute you walk through the door. […] The Ufogel offers both openness and a sense of security. The large panorama windows bring the landscape indoors giving you the feeling you are still outside while the round shell conveys a cosy, woody feeling of security. This makes the Ufogel a refuge full of warmth and rustic character where you will sleep soundly with the feeling you have returned to the origins of the home.”
