With a shallow gabled roof and simple form, Haus P starts with a traditional Allgäu home. It takes a contemporary turn by slicing a section out of the middle. This modification transforms the classic silhouette into two abstract volumes with one functioning as a shed and the other as a residence. Both exteriors are clad in charred timber, a complement to the southern Germany landscape. Internally, pale wood planks line every wall, ceiling, and floor creating a warm minimalist shell. The only exceptions are the concrete fireplace and the floor-to-ceiling windows that allow in the views of the surrounding verdant mountainsides.
