Incredible Compact House Shaped like an Automobile

Incredible Compact House Shaped like an Automobile

Voglreiter Auto Residence belongs to designer Markus Voglreiter and falls into our category of incredible design. The unusual car-home is located near Salzburg, Austria- unfortunately, although it looks like a house on wheels, it is not mobile. The architect came up with this idea after noticing the potential a 70’s style house had to offer and completely turned it around.  It may look small, but this compact house doesn’t lack any of the comfort that comes with a common looking residence. Voglreiter accommodates two generations of families in two separate portions of the “vehicle”. Moreover, the project features sustainable technologies and energy saving systems. We think it would be very interesting to see how the “car” is lined up with all the other homes, creating an enormous contrast.

    […] 由Markus Voglreiter设计的这款小型汽车房屋彻底颠覆了我们的传统思想.它位于奥地利的Salzburg.外形小巧,舒适度与一般普通房屋相比有过之而无不及.遗憾的是,虽然有四个轮子,可并不会跑. Voglreiter给此房屋加上了一套节能系统,绿色又环保.将其与一般的房屋并排放置,将会是一道独特的风景线.via […]

    You’ve only got half the story here. That was built many years ago and since then the same builder created a Car shaped restuarant, see them both here:

    Stunning interior, relatively pointless exterior design, but then when does design have to have a point? Be great if it was mobile!!
