MULTI GENERATION RESIDENTIAL MUNICH

A multi-generation house entirely made from untreated wood, situated in a 1930s residential area in the north of Munich, about 8 kilometers from the city's historic centre.
The elementary simple shape of the house is combined with a complex freeform layer facade and interior. Advanced contemporary layering technology allows construction from 100% natural wood without adhesives, preservative substances, metal braces or or polymeric materials and is therefore very different from common wood-based constructions.
In accordance with traditional demands of sustainability the wood construction features maximum durability through material selection and layering technique.
The use of industrial materials and finishes is reduced to a minimum throughout the building.

view from the south east. The main windows on the 2nd floor are designed as framed perspectives into the garden. external mirrors are changing perspectives as the viewer moves through the house. A corner loggia allows a 180 view from the kitchen area into the garden.

facade from southwest. The building almost becomes invisible for outside views as mirror planking reflects the jungle- like densely arranged garden architecture towards the south of the property.

facade layering offers a multi-scaled appearance and feel of the entire building. All details are designed to be perceived from either far away or up-close, always generating new sensation of the building's shape and scale.

facade materials are untreated, rough larch wood, precisely cut  planks as well as wood shingles of varying scale, oak from northern bavaria, loam rendering and mirror cladding.
