Time for a new format. Nestled amongst the Lower Bavarian landscape is to be found an estate of theme houses, clearly linked by a common architectural language, yet differentiated by their distinguished, theme-specific finishing. The beginning marked the ‚elementary cottage’ - evolving from a plenitude of derivations of the saddle roof on the search for pure proportions and a pictorial exaggeration of its basic theme. The ‚longhouses’ appear distinct, reduced, expressive. The elegant black, weather-beaten old barn, merging with its surroundings, camouflaged by its dark shell against the dark outskirts of the forest. The façades, clad in black timber clads, appear to be in constant change, altering with the wind, showing off their eventful lives just like decayed facades of ancient commercial buildings. The three newly developed houses sit on a gentle hillside, radial fanned and linked with runways, overlooking the vegetal carpet from their landing stages. Evolving from the façades, precisely shaped cubes resume the respective theme of the houses and enable living with and within the landscape. Mirrored glasses interweave the houses with their surroundings, their façades decorated with images of the rural landscape.
