A tapering western slope property surrounded on three sides by roads and paths above Kelkheim, at the foot of a monastery, is the starting point of the project.
Breaking with the usual way of seeing, looking for the surprising moment, is the goal of the overall design.
An inviting house despite obviously repellent facade. Bright without windows. Friendly despite reduction. Spacious with limited size. Staging a far-reaching view and at the same time hiding behind trees. Merging the kitchen with the fireplace. Smooth walls and ceilings contrasted with cloudy exposed screed, rough concrete and ornamental wall tiles. Privacy despite exposed island location.
Clarity without austerity.
