Located in Gotland, Sweden, this house is barely visible because the façade allows it to blend with its natural surroundings.

This beautiful 540 sq-foot Juniper House is made from local timber. Three sides of the house mirror its surroundings with photographs of the trees growing around the house. The photos of the junipers are printed on a vinyl cloth that covers the façade.

The house is designed by Hans Murman Architects in Sweden. Instead of using some expensive technology, they used a smart trick to hide the home.

The 35 meters wide and 3 meters high vinyl cloth is put on the galvanized steel construction, 15 inches away from the wooden exterior cladding. It adds to the privacy of the interior of the house. The house allows you to experience the natural light through the façades while maintaining privacy. Once you open the windows, the interior is flooded with natural light.
