Wohnhaus aus Holz is a wooden house (Wohnhaus aus Holz = Wood House in English) designed by German studio Kühnlein Architektur. Wohnhaus aus Holz is situated on a high plateau in Upper Palatinate, a part of Bavaria, Germany.

Description by Kühnlein Architektur: Two gabled structures are unified with wooden lamellas: one containing living spaces with cooking-dining area and the other a series of bedrooms, bathrooms and utility room. 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. The wooden interior is complemented with copper fittings like lighting, switches, handles and faucets. Custom made sockets and lamps were designed to tie the look together. The effect brings a comfortable living atmosphere inside.

The electrical installation consists of copper pipes installed in front of the massive timber walls, so it was not necessary to perforate the walls. All the installations were designed by Kühnlein Architektur, including the lamps, switches and sockets.”

An open-plan living space occupies the northern most wing. It includes a wood-burning stove that rotates, as well as dining table created using offcuts from the build. A little cloak-cabin for work clothes connects the garage, which sits at the front of this block.
