House on the Elsensee is a minimal residence located in Grünheide, Germany, designed by augustinundfrank.

The house and outbuilding are located on a 1600 square meter plot directly on Lake Elsensee. The surrounding area is mostly built up with summer or weekend houses, among which the first, permanently inhabited houses have mixed.

The house on Lake Elsensee is initially intended for temporary stays, but will be permanently inhabited in the future. The ground floor is glazed all round and so transparent that the lake remains visible from all parts of the parcel. Large sliding elements and a surrounding terrace connect the ground floor with the garden. Rooms on the upper floor are arranged in such a way that diverse spatial relationships can be created with the help of sliding doors and rotating wall elements.
