Log cabin in Laterns

marte.marte architects 

Outside Laterns, in the Austrian state of Vorarlberg, this holiday refuge is a contemporary reinterpretation of the traditional wooden dwelling. Coated in light-toned lying planks, it presents a black timber frame rising on a stepped concrete plinth. Under a pitched roof with a prominent overhang, the 191-square-meter, 3-story building has minimal openings, some of which are hidden behind the outer skin whilst others are emphasized by it.
