Tall cottage Small footprint

This house was designed and built by architects Christine Arnhard and Markus Eck from Atelier Arnhard and Eck Architekten. It’s only 4 meters wide and 13 meters long, which isn’t much by any standard. The house is located in Oberaudorf in Germany and serves as a holiday home.

The dark exterior walls give the home an opportunity to blend in with the surroundings and look less intrusive than other structures. The sloping roof is covered with solar panels in the form of tiles. These produce more energy than the house needs and can share it with the neighboring houses. The exterior walls are clad in solid wood, with the interior parts lined with adobe bricks providing excellent thermal insulation. The entrance and the garage door are next to each other and look incognito like the rest of the facade. The large and very heavy garage door is light pink on the inside, adding a whimsical touch to the home.

Inside, the rooms are connected and this gives the house a very harmonious atmosphere. The kitchen and dining area can jut out into the garden on sunny summer days thanks to the large sliding doors. The seating area has large picture windows that let in light and beautiful views, creating a strong connection between indoors and outdoors.

The dining area and the kitchen can be extended outside towards the garden. The large glass doors let in plenty of sunlight and offer wonderful views of the garden. Check out the pictures of this amazing home below!
