When a cabin is tucked away in the mountains somewhere beautiful, it generally doesn’t need to be all that special from an architectural standpoint, as the location itself tends to set the pace. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be made all the more desirable by a unique structure, as is the case with the UFO House in Bruneck, Italy.
Just south of the Austrian border, this mountain hideaway is actually 45-years-old, having originally been built in 1973, courtesy of late-architect Josef Lackner. Problem is, after its initial construction, it was left and forgotten. That is, until Stefan Hitthaler took it upon himself to renovate the interesting building. Now the flying saucer-esque home is a singularly unique living space with an interior symmetry mimicking that of the outside. And it also boasts a number of modern conveniences, like heated floors, more windows to let in natural light, LED lighting, and more. It even has a draw-bridge style entrance – further cementing the spaceship inspiration of the original structure.
