Das Schwarze Haus, a house with glass walls that open onto nature

German architectural studio Buero Wagner has created Das Schwarze Haus, a block-built house that opens up completely to nature.

Viewed from the outside, the Das Schwarze Haus (The Black House), designed by Buero Wagner studio, doesn’t seem like much, but by approaching it, entering it and studying it from an architectural point of view it turns out to be a masterpiece. 

Its external appearance is so dark that it blends in with the dark green of the surrounding forest, while the interior is light and bright, thanks to the exclusive use of oak wood and sanded concrete. 

The building plays with the volumes, in fact different spaces have been built almost as if they had been stacked on top of each other, both above and below ground level. But the strong point of the Das Schwarze Haus are the two huge French windows on the ground floor that can be opened completely, leaving only two walls for the room and making the surrounding nature part of the building.
