The Timber House from KÜHNLEIN Architektur is situated on a high plateau in Upper Palatinate, a part of Bavaria, Germany. Two gabled structures are unified with wooden lamellas: one containing living spaces and the other a series of bedrooms. The combination creates two yards: One becomes the space you pass by as you enter the house from the street, while the other is a terrace oriented towards the wide landscape. The windows to the street side are screened with the lamellae of the timber facade, while the windows to the landscape side have a free view, the facade is untreated larch wood, so it will grey with time. So from afar, the house appears like identical side-by side homes, completely devoid of windows. Inside, the timber continues, with exposed structural framework, oak floors, as well as wooden tables, cabinets and effects.
