House on the Alb

C18 Architekten BDA as Architects

Archaic, sparse, sweeping – a subjective view of the untouched landscape of the Alb. The building site, situated on the edge of a trivial building area , was low priced – due to it’s topography hardly suitable for building. A corpus, enrooted with the earth, stems itself against the hillside. Everything orientates itself to the south. The spatial conception is significant: areas for retreat on the entrance floor for parents and children, a gangway downwards into capaciousness, space for cooking, eating and living with an unobstructed view of the landscape. An outwardly insulated concrete construction, lime plaster applied with handcraft and a mineral paint coating are expression of a deep connection to the earth; a simple cube in dialog with nature. Inside plastered walls, oak parquet flooring and white lackered built-in furniture form a frame for family life.
