‘my cousin’s house’ is a single family residence and garden oberpullendorf, austria by wein-based practice martin mostböck.
the zigzagged roofline creates clerestory windows which are placed to encourage and control ventilation within the living spaces,
contributing to its status as a passive structure. reinforced concrete serves as a thermally efficient building material while
solar collectors generate the home’s heat and hot water sources. the 150 square meter dwelling includes an office,
terrace and carport. the internal organization is derived from the movement of inhabitants in accordance with the sun and moon.
