Schmidhuber

On the outskirts of Tabing, a small village near Bavaria’s Chiemsee, the outbuilding of an historic farmhouse has been replaced by modern timber architecture. The new building deliberately sets itself apart from the old farmhouse, but its shape, wooden façade and simple design also refers directly to the surrounding barns.

Name: Schmidhuber

Scenery: On the outskirts of a small village, 3km from the northern shore of Lake Chiemsee.

Turmhaus Tirol

Situated in the Tyrolean Alps, Turmhaus Tirol is built into the gradient of a steep mountain slope and reaches up six floors into the sky. The lower three floors are dug into the slope itself and form the concrete foundation for the wooden structure. Flamed larch boards of different widths, some of which overlap, give structure and character to the façade. The windows, arranged according to functions of each room, also liven up the reduced design of the building, with its wide cantilevered saddle roof.

Solarferienhaus S3

Solarferienhaus S3 (Solar Holiday Home S3) is proof of how an A-frame house dating to the 1970s can be converted into an innovative energy-plus house that – with its modern architectural language and purist interior design – can also appeal to design aesthetes. Located in a former holiday village in Chiemgau, between the Chiemsee lake and Salzburg, the house produces more energy than it uses. This energy surplus can then be used, for example, to charge an electric car or bicycle.

Region/Town: DE – Germany, Bavaria, Chiemgau, Siegsdorf/Vorauf

Scenery: Surrounded by the charming hilly landscape of the Chiemgau
