Stuttgart photographer Zooey Braun has sent us his images of this corrugated house in Bavaria, designed by German firm SoHo Architektur.

Called Bru 1.25, the house was designed for the architect's brother.

The roof and external walls have been clad in fibre-cement corrugated panels, eliminating the need for rain-pipes or gutters.

The timber structure has a double-height ceiling in the living space, visually connecting it to the upper floor.

Haus BRU 1.25, Heimertingen

The 125,000 Euro detached home with 90 sqm habitable area was developed for a couple – precisely the architect’s brother – BRU 1.25.

Decisions on construction method, materiality and quality were primarily based on building costs.

Fair faced interior walls, screed as finished flooring, visible insulation strips between floor and walls, and the use of corrugated cement fibre panels for facade cladding and roofing – no need for rainpipes and gutters – help to reduce the costs.

The timber building enables a strong connection between interior and exterior through the accurately positioned openings on ground level.

The double floor height dining area generously connects first and second floor.

The wooden deck between the house and the garage offers a private outdoor room, bordered by a concrete wall to the north and a flower bed to the south.

The small dwelling reveals an economic alternative to the commonly used concepts, although, according to the local newspapers, due to the originality of the design it asks for some openess from its neighbours and vicinity.

    I wonder why they choose red panels for the walls when white would have blended in with the other houses in the neighborhood. but I like the simple straightforward design.

  • bru

    the roof had to be in red color.

    Woohoo Go Pitched! Dezeen Give us more Pitched Roofs Please…especially when it's expressed boldly in the interior. Wish more pics showed the angled roof on the inside…a lot of interior shots can can be of any other cube building project.

    not a new idea but well executed

  • jimb

    the austere form is really strongly supported in the qualities of the corrugated metal facade, reminds me of the bechers…just a let down once you get inside that the interior spatially seems quite uninteresting. Nice little details in the handrail and light fixture though

  • felix

    Would be great to see some close-ups of the walls and details.

  • alar

    I agree with dlstonrosi: nothing new. But it looks cool and comfortable; something that is not seen often…

  • edward

    The cladding is cement fiber BTW, and the house was built for very little money at 125,000Euros. So the interior is understandably plain. It would be nice to see more of these low budget homes here.

    I think it is a really lovely looking house.

    The use of cement fibre is very interesting.

    That 'corrugated iron' look would be very difficult to get accepted in the UK. I know that in other places such as Australia people do use corrugated materials for the roofs of their house and for fencing, so it would more easily fit in there.

    who needs more, really? it can be 'improved' over time.
    a house is a living organism, right?
