What was once a traditional 70’s style suburban home located in Salzburg, Austria has now become a  green home with a unique design.  The home, which architect and designer  Markus Volglreiter calls the “Auto Residence,” looks like a futuristic Volkswagen Bug.

It was so popular he built a restaurant like it also in Salzburg.

    Pretty brilliant. He should build these all over the world. Like in my front yard.

    I also wish the car house were next door to the piano house: http://www.alleewillis.com/awmok/kitschenette/?s=piano+house&x=33&y=16

    That’s fabulous! There used to be a house built to look like a large boat (or maybe an ark?) in rural NE Ohio. It was at least two stories tall and I used to pass it on my drive between college and home. It was a sad day when I drove by one day and it had disappeared.

    WOW…just incredible!!

  5. The big Car house is so well done, it makes the other houses seem over-sized instead of vice versa. I see a winding staircase through the front windows. Would love to peek inside this place. What a cool creation.

  6. Here is the architect’s web page with more photos of the house, including 3D views and interactive 360 degree views:
