Villa Schöneiche

HAMMOODI & PARTNER as Architects

The villa is built in an angular shape on 1250 m2 land with old trees on the outskirts of Berlin. The new villa is attached to an existing weekend house, but there is no functional connection only to make the most of the landscape garden where birds, squirrels and hedgehogs live. The building's owner lived and worked for a long time in the orient and the villa embodies nostalgie from this time and connects to eclectic villas around Berlin with a postmodern addiction. Before one enter the house the paving tiles are laid in a pattern like a carpet. The entry to the villa is protected by an arched portal which give shadow to an arched window over two floors. The foyer reaches over two floors and makes the entrance more spacious. The ground floor consists of a living room with fire-place, a kitchen and a dining room, guest WC, a garage and an apartment with separate entrance.

In the second floor there are two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a sauna and a spacious sun terrace adjacent to the bedroom from a gallery one can see in the foyer of the entrance. A stair tower leads to the roof terrace with panorama view. Her are solar cells installed to support warm water generation from renewable energy, the walls are erected with aerated concrete blocks which have good insulating properties. The ceilings are precast decks. The double glass windows have low u-value. All rooms are natural illuminated and Ventilated. Energy saving lamps are used all over the place and WC flash can be optional regulated. Recyclable materials are chosen and the villa is erected from local craftsmen.
