The old building from the 1930s offered the ideal prerequisite for the client to realise his idea of modern and sustainable living as a family in the countryside.

For this purpose, the compact, small-scale typology of the existing building was broken up and supplemented on the first floor and in the attic with extensions in ecological wood sandwich construction.

These cubic extensions project out from the existing building towards the garden. The timber curtain wall emphasises the contrast between the contemporary timber construction and the classical masonry and plaster construction. Below the projection, the terrace connects the interior with the lower-lying garden.

Inside, the extensions made it possible to redesign the small-scale room layout of the existing building. This made it possible to plan new, spacious floor plans. Targeted window openings to the garden area also open up a strong connection to the outside. The rooms are now bright and appear friendly.
