The project is a new building for a family house.
The single-family house is located on a “second row” property that borders directly on the Teltow Canal. The property has direct access to the waterfront. On the property there was an existing building from 1938 that was demolished.
The single-family house consists of a sub-area with a basement, in which there is a modern spa area and a gym, a ground floor with a loft-like living and dining area and an upper floor with retreat rooms.
The cubature of the house is generated through the addition of individual building parts with their own functions. The structure of the materiality of the individual cubes transports the assembly to the outside.
The entrance cube, which houses the light-flooded foyer, is formulated with an oversized and very filigree ceiling pane. The dimensions of the components can be optimized through the selected materiality of the exposed concrete.
The exposed living and dining area, which is distributed as a split-level storey loft-like on the ground floor, contains generous openings that allow the entire outdoor area of the garden to merge with the interior. The “light elements”, which structure the ground floor plinth as a generous glass surface, form the plinth of the house with the solid exterior walls clad in wood on the outside.
The introverted upper floor is provided as a private retreat with an elegant and simple plastered facade.
