black on white – studio house, Wenzenbach, Germany
fabi architekten bda

A house like an archetype. As a prelude to the castle "Schönberg" (12th century) at the Wehrgraben - site of a former guard house.

The house consists of two building volumes - one homogeneous, black saddle roofed building lying turned and cantilevered on a white flat roof box. A minimal intrusion into the hillside topography. The volumes open up targeted to the natural space, the forest. The buildings to the sorroundings shine quiet and conciseness – unambiguity.

Diving into the slope the visitor develops the house over an underground wardrobes/reception room – is soaked up through the ray of light over a free overhanging stairs. Above: One room for working, thinking, talking, eating, celebrating, relaxing ... the result of the failure of all irrelevancy – minimalism. In the evening retreat into the belly of the house for cleaning, relaxing and sleeping. Always accompany of the look in the nature room - diminution.

Pure geometric out of lively material – monolithic with penetration. On the Outside: granite crushed stone following the topography – of rough till fine – black aspahlt as a back gear. Sufficiency and respect for the place are the aims of buliding the future.
