• House B

    at the Kleiner Glubigsee lake
    Wendisch-Rietz (D)

    An unexpectedly open development plan was created for the small, sandy peninsula, spanning two levels and containing no specific instructions for roof designs. The plan was based on the proverbial coaster at an upscale Erfurt restaurant. The steep hillside sloping towards the lake was terraced into two levels. At almost the same level as the lake, the residential level was recessed longitudinally into the slope and fully glassed in.

  • Diagonally above it is the floor housing the bedrooms. It is designed completely in wood, is purposely sealed off from the street with typical Swabian modesty, and protrudes well over the terrace towards the lake. This created two virtually flat areas which divide the previously steep property into private and common areas.
