Adding modern residential architecture sensitively and appropriately to an older, mature settlement is a planning challenge. On the one hand, the new building would like to present itself formally and materially as a design of our time, on the other hand, it should not stand out as an arrogant solitaire between its long-standing neighbors.
The new family home in Regensburg cleverly masters this tightrope walk by deliberately small scale. Although the design with flat roofs and puristic details clearly sets itself apart from the surrounding pitched roof structures.
Contrary to the trend towards monolithic forms, however, the volume of the house was skilfully dissolved into four individual cubes of very different dimensions.
Taken individually, each of the four is smaller than the neighboring houses. They share a view-protected atrium, which opens on the corner to the pool and garden.
The formal fineness was continued on the two-storey entrance side by an unpretentious, almost playful facade design. What particularly stands out is an apparent exposed concrete relief, which was led upstairs on the corner – an outdoor wallpaper that leads the observer with a wink.
Inside, the collage of materials, colors and shapes continues: the staircase stands as an oak wood sculpture in the entrance area, a wall panel in exposed concrete separates it from the spatial continuum of the ground floor.
Sections in exposed concrete and the oven ensemble in oiled crude steel break through the white wall surfaces. The white oiled oak planks of the floor are supplemented at particularly stressed areas of limestone coverings.
