Schematic Design, 2012
Wuppertal, Germany
155m² living area
Single-family house renovation and addition

The new extension merges with the existing “Siedlungshaus” by overlapping and continuing the pitched roof, creating a form at once familiar and unique.
The black corrugated facade generates an abstract silhouette that emphasises the new form with its excavated corners, which are clad in horizontal timber and provide access to the house and terrace.
The pitched extension creates a variety of spatial configurations and fluent transitions from the new to the existing. It also introduces a new double height living space that has a playful composition of windows and openings orientated towards the garden.
