Floor-to-ceiling glazing wraps around the building, providing panoramic views of the landscape and flooding the interior spaces with natural light.

House R

    Concratulations Guys!

    Crazy and Hip. Very brave for the munich szene!
    Wondering, how you managed the german energetic standards and builing laws.
    Can you post the costs of this beautyful house?
    Simply AMAZING!

    not my taste.
    awkward shape and trying-too-hard-attitude all the way through.
    still, nicely detailed.
    but not every suburban house needs to be a guggenheim..

    when can i move in? once I've lassoed my husband? seriously though i think that it would be quite interesting to know more about the acrylic glass cylinders in terms of new materials (is it?) plus functionality, cost of environmental footprint re manufacturing etc.

    What were they trying to cover by photoshop-ing in a very bad way the first picture??? :S

    great effort and a lot of ideas but still the interior looks boring imho… talking bout complex functional sequence makes me wait for some more interesting relationships.
