I am quite excited, because I have seen many pictures of the “Ufogel” tiny house in Austria, but never before was I able to find the name of the house or its location. It turns out that it is surrounded by breathtaking mountain country, and you can actually book a stay here! Let’s check it out!
You can see why the Ufogel makes so many rounds through social media. It is an incredibly distinctive looking tiny house, and it has an unusual design which almost seems to defy gravity, propped up as it is on those tiny stilts.
Seen from the front, the house actually arguably looks even cooler and more unusual. This shot also shows off some of the spectacular rugged peaks in the background.
Here is the particular photo which I have seen time and again floating around the web. Notice the cool, unusual shape of the window.
This photo of the Ufogel in the snow gives it a whole new look. When I see how much powder has piled up around it, I can understand why it has been raised off the ground with steps leading up to it.
On the inside, the house does not look nearly as unusual. Actually, it seems quite ordinary in its way—at least from this angle. That wood burning stove must get a lot of use considering the kind of snowfall this area gets!
But don’t let this image fool you—the only reason it appears so “ordinary” is because from here, you can’t see the view out the window.
There are hooks for bags and coats next to the door as well as a bin to hold shoes.
I admit outright to finding this image a bit puzzling. That dress appears to be resting on thin air. Is that a mirror? A window?
Now here’s a beautiful shot which showcases the beautiful arc of the ceiling. There are multiple beds and even a convenient partition between them, which is awesome in such a small space. This would make the Ufogel a great place to stay for families or groups of friends. Everyone can hang out together but still enjoy a degree of privacy.
The whole look of this room is very smooth and organic.
This photo shows you how the space fits together. This bedroom is located upstairs, but it is still connected to the main living space.
This lovely photo finally reveals something of the view through the window. The way the window projects up and out seems to focus the eye on the peaks and the sky. This in turn creates an impression as if one is floating high above the world.
It gets even better, as you can see. You can recline in the window seat and really soak in all that beauty. This would be awesome on snowy days when it is too cold to spend a lot of time outside.
It’s a very roomy spot.
In fact, it is so spacious that the cushions can even be reoriented so that you can recline against the window itself (nice for chatting with others across the room).
This is the bathroom. The most interesting feature would seem to be the shower. I find that back wall a bit confusing. I assume the bright space near the top is a window. At any rate, the shower door is very nearly invisible it is so transparent. It fits in well with the minimalist look of the entire house.
This is what the bathroom looks like from inside the shower.
Here is the “kitchen.” I am pretty sure that is a stovetop on the far right at the edge of the photo.
Here are a couple of photos which give a great look at the layout of the main living area and which really show off its appeal.
Here are a few more shots of the exterior:
