A two-storey cube, made of red bricks, stands in the core of this urban family home.
Its factory-like presence evokes rhythm and repetition as light shines through the iron windows. Wrapped around the cube, is a white minimalistic structural layer that puts the project into a contemporary design context.
This single-family residence is set in a 670 square metre lot and measures 380 square metres.
The design was inspired by the family's anthroposophical lifestyle and passion for handcrafts. The layout enables eye contact between the house residents: the parents and their two teenage children.
