The steep hillside property in Dobel offers a wide view of the Black Forest, perfectly framed by the strategically placed window sections in the building. The minimal selection of materials creates a smooth transition between the exterior and interior and provides sufficient space for different uses.
The building is composed of two interlocking structures: a residential building and a garage. The shape of the building blends seamlessly into the local landscape while also adding a special accent with its charred wooden facade. The building is discreet on the street side, opening only onto the southwest with its large window sections so that the house is shielded from neighbours looking in. Selected materials such as solid wood walls and ceilings on the ground floor, exposed concrete walls in the basement, floor screeds, tadelakt for wet surfaces in the bathroom and clay plaster on the inside of all exterior walls come together harmoniously and produce a pleasant room climate. A photovoltaic system on the roof supplies energy for the air-water heat pump and later the electric car in the garage.
