House Within a House

Post image for House Within a House

This German Architecture firm renovated a crumbling 18th-century structure without touching it — or so it seems — and won the 2005 AR Award for Emerging Architecture. They removed the roof and simply added the new wooden structure inside of the old stone walls. The new roof protects both structures.


The name of the work is S(ch)Austall, loosely translated as pigsty/showroom. (via AT and The Tiny Life)
