The brief set required a residence and workshop to accommodate the owners Unimog. German architecture studios Fabian Evers Architecture and Wezel Architektur coined the structure ‘House Unimog’ in homage to the four wheel drive trucks produced by Mercedes-Benz. This unique corrugated home is set on two levels; the ground floor is semi transparent, the first floor black and opaque.

The limitations such as cost and location in a busy location near Tübingen, Germany factored highly throughout the design process. This is reflected in the choice of materials used.


“The concept was to stack the two different uses on top of each other in order to minimise the footprint on the site and to orient the living rooms from the street towards the landscape,” said Fabian Evers.
