The project for the family of five, an artist and a psychologist, makes existing and new buildings stand side by side, and at the same time forms a coherent unit. At the heart of the design are the free-flowing spatial contexts, both inside and outside.
The interface between the old building and the new building marks a spiral staircase, which shapes the cubature of the building structure and at the same time guides views and movements naturally. It is accompanied by a spiral staircase that also forms a separate entrance to the new building.
By projecting the upper floor and playing with the topography of the property, high-quality and protected exterior spaces are created.
Inside the existing building, the ground floor was opened generously to create a coherent living, cooking and dining area. This is only separated from the studio in the new building by a sliding door, from which the striking spiral staircase leads to the gallery and sleeping area on the upper floor. The room sequences are divided by spatial interlocking, zoning and height differences and thus do without doors. There is no clear boundary between the individual spatial functions - nevertheless space for community and intimacy is created. The different rooms impress with their different atmospheres and the resulting sense of space, which are characterized by different materials. The lush openings of the façade are designed from the inside to the outside - they open up targeted views without revealing distracting glimpses of the residents. The culmination of this principle is the roof terrace, which offers a free view of the surroundings on all sides.
