a German Motor House

Posted by:

Hot house or hot wheels? The Voglreiter Auto Residence is both! Designed by German architect Markus Voglreiter, this cool, compact house in Gnigl near Salzburg, Austria is unlike anything we’ve ever seen, and it’s certainly worthy of a tour. Originally a ‘70s-style house, the architect saw its many challenges and opportunities, namely, transforming a house structure into a car! Beyond that, Voglreiter incorporated two separate dwellings to accommodate two generations of the same family. He also instituted a eco-sustainable three-liter energy-efficient heating and insulation technique to dramatically reduce energy consumption, all the while, adhering to building codes in this prime historic Salzburg location.
