House Ufogel in Austria
- Caroline Kurze
This Austrian house Ufogel is a fully-furnished and functional home set on a hillside overlooking some of the best mountain views in the area. The house blends 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, a design choice rarely seen outside of beach communities. 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.
