Located in Vandans, Austria, the home has a circular floor plan that allows the spaces within to feel private even though they are essentially all connected. The kitchen, living room, dining room, bedroom and bathroom all co-exist on one open-concept level, but maintain their separate identities due to the curve of the circle.

On the lower level, the home’s owners can make use of the porch and the sauna, or they can pull up a chair on the top level’s beautiful wind-sheltered terrace. During the day, the whole home is drenched in natural light, minimizing the need for electricity.
