With the aim of blending the boundaries between indoors and outdoors, Ahlbrech Felix Scheidt Kasprush Architects designed this glowing glass home within a pine forest in Germany. Called Minimum House, the residence is situated in Mellensee, south Berlin, and it is currently up for sale – including all furniture and fittings. Modular, energy-efficient and topped by a green roof, this modernist shelter combines two key design elements: ecology and economy.

Mainly made from glass and wood, Minimum House was projected by a multidisciplinary team consisting of architects, engineers, highly skilled builders and technicians. Highly energy-efficient, the woodland shelter has 3 glazed sides that allow active and passive solar energy use, and a north face made from highly insulated timber. A space for enjoying a contemporary open-plan living, Minimum House is also topped by a green roof planted with dense vegetation to reduce solar gain while serving as a natural rainwater filter.
