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.
