Unique Architecture- Amazing House Shaped like an Automobile

What was once a traditional 70’s style suburban home located in Salzburg, Austria has now become a surprisingly green home with a unique design. Unfortunately, although it looks like a house on wheels, it is not mobile.  The home, which architect and designer Markus Voglreiter calls the “Auto Residence,” looks like a futuristic Volkswagen Bug.  Although it may stick out like a sore thumb in its Austrian neighborhood, it has some very cool green features that make it extra-ordinary. It may look small, but this compact house doesn’t lack any of the comfort that comes with a common looking residence.

The home features a “3 liter energy efficient heating and insulation technique that optimizes all current building technologies, drastically reducing energy consumption.”  It also has two separate living spaces (one for the kids and one for the parents) that are connected by beautifully-designed metal staircases.  Plus, there are numerous windows throughout the house that make the entire car-home bright and sunny.
