'The Barn' house by 'Mark Neuner and Mostlikely Architecture' is a building that looks just like Noah's Ark from the outside. The wooden exterior of the building looks like it could be submerged in water but instead, it is firmly planted on the ground in Austria and surrounded by snow.

Since this house was built in an extremely traditional area of Austria, this design was meant to be respectful of the surrounding architecture and historic traditions of the site.

Because the concept for this family house is based on a barn, in addition to wood, the design uses concrete panels on the exterior are imprinted with flowers and creatures from mythology that are believed to have inhabited the mountains.
