Designer Otmar Prenner's alpine home is located in the heart of South Tyrol and boasts an elegant and eco-themed design. The wood-wrapped abode is a renovated farm house that oroginally belonged to the furniture maker and sculptor's grandfather.

Boasting gorgeous views of Itally's mounted region, this alpine home marries clean aesthetics with function. Though originally built in the 14th century, this renovated farm house embodies contemporary design ideals.

The residence boasts clean lines and touches on its rustic history with wood finishes and furniture pieces like pine stools and a bed and desk that are handcrafted out of raw wood. Furthermore, the home is heated with cut firewood, acting both as its source of energy and as a decorative accent when stacked inside.
