In terms of open architecture, the Waldhaus by Atelier ST offers greater privacy than your modernist glass boxes, allowing passers-by to peer in from just a single side of the abode. While many homes feature striking expanses of floor-to-ceiling fenestration, this charming cottage seems to frame the activities of its interior by its iconically pitched shape.

The dark brown siding of the dwelling creates significant contrast against the white-painted and illuminated living space indoors, making the building a beacon in the night upon its forested site in Leipzig, Germany. This exposed front room of the Waldhaus by Atelier ST is a shallow one with an eating area, a place to warm yourself next to a fire and a hidden cushioned loft within the broad attic overhang.
