This box-shaped house is located in Klausdorf, Germany. It was designed and built by Scheidt Kasprusch Architekten and it was completed in 2008. The house sits on a 151 sq m plot and it’s surrounded by nature from every angle. It was created as a prototype for a serial holiday and residential house and it’s offered with all furniture and fittings included.

The idea that inspired this project was to create the ideal house that would offer maximum outdoor areas and that would make full use of the solar benefits. The house has glass walls on three sides and this makes it seems like it’s floating above the ground, in the same time appearing like immaterial. Nevertheless, it’s very real and it’s very close to being the perfect getaway.

The roof of the house is covered with vegetation, plus a solar system. The house faces north and that wall is highly insulated with a two=shell timber frame construction. The west and east façade can be easily opened by using the sliding windows. All the materials used in the process were chosen according to ecological and sustainable criteria. The result was this modern beauty that could soon become a serial design.found on archdaily and pics by Christian Gahl
