Overlooking some of the best mountain views in Austria, this 45-square-meter tree house designed by Peter Jungmann is a fully-furnished and functional home set on a hillside in the village of Nußdorf/Debant in Osttirol near Lienz.
Playfully taking its name from a combination of the words ‘UFO’ and ‘Vogel,’ which means bird in German, Ufogel is set on structural stilts and was commissioned by a family as a holiday house that would capitalize on the spectacular views available while having as little impact on the natural environmental as possible.
The Ufogel is the creation of an extraordinary and comfortably appointed tree house made almost entirely of larch wood. The tree house is comfortably appointed with a kitchen unit, WC and designer shower.
Large panorama windows bring nature indoors to you, while the curved timber structure covered with traditional shingles creates a feeling of warmth and security. This makes the Ufogel a refuge full of warmth and rustic character where you will sleep soundly with the feeling you have returned to the origins of the home.
