Topped with a traditional Alpine pitched roof with overhanging eaves, Holzhaus am Auerbach is handsomely wrapped on two sides by black-stained timber, while the gabled walls were left unpainted to develop a natural gray patina. The holiday home fully embraces the outdoors through two steel-framed terraces that cantilever out from both sides of the dwelling and expand the footprint of the kitchen and dining room. Strategically located black-framed windows punctuate the interior and bring cross-breezes through the home.

While the black and gray color palette continues in the contemporary interior, honey-colored wood surfaces were also added to break up the dark colors and bring a sense of warmth to the home. The home’s five split-level floors include: a workshop in the basement level; an activity room and garage space with an electric car charging point on the first floor; the kitchen and dining room; the living room; the bedroom that overlooks the Auerbach; and finally, a small top-floor gallery with a freestanding tub and large skylight. The home includes underfloor heating and a mechanical ventilation system. Holzhaus am Auerbach is available to rent through Urlaubs Architektur.
