"a kitchen please"

bob-architektur BDA as Architects

After years of cooking in a small and dark room, in September 2010 the strong wish of a bigger and brighter kitchen araised at a family from the north of Cologne. Finally it did not stick at this kitchen. In the cours of the design process an extension was created, which bestrides the whole building length and hight. The expansion of the residential building includes now an added hobby room, a living-room, a nursery and a new generous bathroom. For the basic concept the idea of interior fusion between extension and existence but at once the clear and strict seperation outside, was followed.“The existing- and the new building behave like brother and sister – although they indicate the same DNA through the old exterior wall, they are nevertheless more than different outside“ so Kerstin Lindscheid. „Often you could hear an „that does not work!“ at the lot“, so the projekt director. „The strict raster of the planked schist boards was boon and bain at te same time.“ But after about 12 months of intensive building time everyone areed: „It works!“
