Glass and Timber Home in Germany Offers Amazing Hillside Views

By • Apr 1, 2021

Down into the idyllic town of Margrethausen in the Albstadt district in Germany, we find a beautiful home that offers breathtaking views of the surrounding hills and neighborhood.

Cozy Home in Albstadt
The home uses natural materials and blends in with the surroundings.

Designed by architects from Dietrich and Untertrifaller Architekten, the house is built with sustainable materials and beautifully integrates in with the surroundings. Yet, we find there’s something futuristic about the place, mostly thanks to the glass walls, the soft lights, and the design.

The home’s front is completely made of glass.

The built of the house was done with concrete at the base, but the structure is all timber.

Cozy and light, the home stands out.

As you enter the house, you meet more wood – wooden ceilings, wooden paneling on the walls, and wooden floors. The design is simple and stylish and the huge windows are a big statement.

The solid black kitchen stands out against the light wood on the walls, ceiling, and floor.

The outdoor space carries on the same wooden floor we saw inside, with a huge deck. The extended roof offers some coverage as you enjoy lunch outside.

The deck offers ample space for entertaining.

The furniture inside is also minimal – simple table and chair set, airy chandelier, massive kitchen island, and some comfy and fun poufs which offer a colorful accent for the room.

The minimal furniture makes the room seem even bigger.

The upper floor offers a wide-open concept with lots of storage on the sides and more floor-to-ceiling windows. The covered terrace also offers more ways to enjoy the outdoors.

The top floor offers even better views.
The views towards the hills make it easy to understand why they chose to use so much glass.

Wall dividers offer a lot of storage room, as well as some privacy. The owners added some curtains to the glass so you can get some privacy from the neighbors.

Wood is used to separate the living spaces.

The vertical wooden slats on the windows for the bathroom provide extra privacy and shading.

Some privacy is given by the vertical wooden slats.

The floor plans show how open the plan of the room is, and how you do not need a lot of things to have a beautiful home.
