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: https://www.alleewillis.com/awmok/kitschenette/?s=piano+house&x=33&y=16
Its just fabulous, I love the piano house as well , they should have a street full ,everyone different…
Excellent Shirlie! I´ve seen the house before but I had no idea it was in salzburg!
I know B , I was surprised as well , Imagine living it it …
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.
Oh, that makes me sick to think something that magnificent was destroyed. We can only hope this one still survives: https://www.alleewillis.com/awmok/kitschenette/2011/03/27/she-lives-in-a-boeing-727/
Carrie, I’m in NE Ohio, where was this large house boat? When did it disappear?
It was along SR 3 somewhere between Mt Vernon and Wooster, though I don’t remember exactly where (if I drove it again, I could probably identify the spot though!) I was driving that route regularly between 1995 and 1999 – it disappeared around 1998/1999.
I’m in Akron. I don’t think we drove that route though we visited Wooster when Rubbermaid was there.
I’m in Delaware County. Hi from Central Ohio! :)
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.
Here is the architect’s web page with more photos of the house, including 3D views and interactive 360 degree views:
I agree excellent link, thank you Brian
