Holiday House Hof Ahmen by Atelier Sunder-Plassmann
Simon Schmalhorst

Atelier Sunder-Plassmann has created a new building to complement a unique listed farm in Germany.


The project stands to the east of the main thatched building at Hof Ahmen, where it neighbours the open wooden constructions of the sheep barns.

The new holiday house forms an extension of these freestanding roof structures: a fifth, floating roof is added to blend with the surroundings. A floating platform, inserted under the roof, forms the main space of the house and creates a threshing floor. This platform is completely glazed and the boundary between inside and outside becomes blurred, in a continuum between interior and exterior space.

The careful balancing of elements including landscape and architecture, rural and modern, open and closed, determine the design and see the house become a unique place set within lush nature.


This project has been longlisted in the rural house category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
