A 45 sq.m. Bird-Like House Will Leave You Curious. The Inside Will Surprise You!

At first glance, you will say, “Huh? Is that really a house?” I asked the same question. I actually thought it was just a sculpture of some sort. It looked like an extraterrestrial thingy and it also looked like a bird. This house is called Ufogel Holiday House and it is called this way because it resembles a prehistoric bird. I know you can still think of other stuffs that may look like this house.

The Ufogel Holiday House designed by Architect Peter Jungmann is perched like a bird in the meadow near Lienz, Austria. It stands on stilts and appears like floating. Aside from its shape and design, the house is also surprisingly small with only 45 sq.m. living space. But we tell you, the house is complete with a kitchen, dining, living, bathroom and bedrooms.

But the truth is, it works just like your own home despite its strange shape.

That is why the designers said that the minute you enter the house you will be amazed of its “spatial wonder”.

Because it really is a wonder! On the window side, a mezzanine has this area with a comfy bed.

Where one can look outside and enjoy the panoramic view of the mountains.

Below that area is this dining space. Note the wooden interior that is used in the entire house.

To save space, a bench was attached to the flooring of the mezzanine while the table is attached to the wall directly below the window.

And just in front of the dining area is this kitchen.

And here is the bathroom which even have a shower area!

Amazing. Very much amazing! With so little space and a very challenging shape, the Ufogel Holiday House contained all that! Certainly, one can live in here and would enjoy all the privacy they can get. I am always impressed with how small houses are designed. But this one is no doubt extraordinary. If I have a house like this, I will be proud to say that “I live in a bird!”
