House in Allgäu, Bavaria
A person planning a house on a meadow above a subterranean lake from the former glacial period has either nerves of steel or not the faintest idea. This is what happened to the Berlin architect Carlos Zwick when he wanted to construct, Hinang House, a summer residence for his family of 8 in his Allgäu homeland.
