The wooden cube, reduced to the necessaries, should be a positive example for agricultural buildings integrating the free landscape around it. With its archaic appearance, the small, flat-roofed shed is built on a site beside a grove of trees near the miniature goats’ grazing pastures in Upper Palatinate, a region in eastern Bavaria.
Without the necessary of an expensive planning, calculations or building materials, it is only the idea of the piled timber beams to reach ambitious architecture, nevertheless an economically alternative to the finished products from the hardware store.
The project was the winner of the Bavarian timber award Holzbaupreis Bayern 2014, an annual competition sponsored by the Bavarian State Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Forestry for energy-efficient and cost-effective wooden architecture.
