Although the structural frame is made with concrete, the rest of the interior and exterior of the cabin was constructed with 60 trees felled sustainably nearby. This contrasting timber was used for walls, floors, doors and even some of the home’s furniture, and a deck runs the entire length of the cabin [2].

Small and large cutouts permit an ethereal natural light, reducing the project’s overall energy load, while a wood-fired stove and ground source heat pump keep the place warm. Designed to match the Bregenz district’s vernacular architecture, the double-storey gabled home sits ever so quietly amid the rural setting of Vorarlberg.
