House K, Germany

The goal with House K was to create a family residence – spacious, representative but modern. with children’s room. As a meeting place for family and large circle of friends. With a spacious kitchen – the husband is a passionate cook. Both like to host many people and friends around.

On the street side, the house and garden is protected from curious glances by a wall panel of natural stone strips, without appearing repellent. The large entrance glazing behind wooden slats allows a deep view at a certain angle, if desired. The cantilevered roof acts as a welcoming gesture, drawing in the visitor.

The sloping roof, required by the preservation department, enables the creation of a central room, extending full height to the top of the roof and equipped with a skylight strip. This loft-like living room is the central link to all living areas, such as the club room, guest area, kitchen and dining room, ascending to the intimate upper floor, via a gallery, comprising of children’s room, the owners’ sleeping area with dressing room and large bathroom. The focal point of the house is a large open fireplace tower. When the 14-meter-long sliding window front at the garden side is opened, it also becomes part of the generous terrace.

What were the key challenges?
Historic preservation in terms of color, material and design of the house (pitched roof, for example, was a requirement here) / The premises and terrace / garden offer a secluded privacy, but can be completely toned for representative purposes, up to a view from the street into the garden

How is the project unique?
A 14 m long and 3 m high sliding glass front to the garden with a loft-like living area with a huge open fireplace, which also warms the terrace when the façade is open and becomes the focal point of the entire interior and exterior.

What are the sustainability features?
the loft-like living room with dining area and kitchen opens up to the peak of the roof. in summer, the electrically opening windows create a chimney effect here, allowing the cool garden air to ventilate through the rooms. the southwest orientation of the house prevents the penetration of the hot deep west sun and ensures pleasantly tempered evenings with a garden view.
