sommerhaus piu

a collaborative effort between germany based patrick frey + björn götte has led to the development of 'sommerhaus piu', 
a prefabricated wooden vacation home. simple, elegant and versatile, the facade is defined by thin horizontal strips of wood. 
a slightly pitched roof edged with charcoal planks allows natural light to enter clerestory windows into the living spaces while 
bedrooms are protected from direct sunlight with limited windows.
