The ‘CJ5 House’ – an innovative, inward-looking residence maximising the Floor Area Ratio (FAR = 1.0) of a 5m x 35m side on the outskirts of Vienna by filling the entire site.

Designed by Caramel Architekten, the peaks and troughs of the roofline  create a series of levels and voids for the interlocking rooms and enclosed courtyard beneath. Heavy insulation, heat pump and photovoltaics make the house virtually independent from the grid.

And the neighbours.
