Modern concrete residence designed by Architekturbüro Stocker situated on the northern rim of the Black Forest in Engelsbrand, Germany.
Description by Architekturbüro Stocker On a ninety two-acre property on the northern rim of the Black Forest, two residential homes and a pool got here into being inside a panorama backyard. On the uncovered topography situated on a slight slope, totally different topologies are explored. The inhabited and uninhabited buildings, and gardens of various sizes present the bottom for a quest of classical and unknown geometric topologies. The calm seek for the “quinta essentia“ of a chic classical type leads from the tetrahedron to the bogus panorama, a classical type which doesn’t deny its revolutionary roots and formulates a poetic science. In Phase One, the prevailing home was reconstructed, prolonged, and reduce in two. By main a run via its center, the home was opened to the panorama. In Phase Two, the brand new development is a precise and barely raised hexahedron. The exterior leaves, manufactured from uncovered concrete, form the raised dice with common type ties. The rigorous construction on the surface with radical ramps, batters and graded terraces, types the start line of the property. The wild panorama of the Black Forest is artificially enclosed. Along the 820-foot-lengthy axis of summer time solstice, the synthetic panorama frees itself to a pure and wild habitat. In the playful inside of the hexahedron, low ceilings alternate with two-story excessive ceilings. Joiner’s work on a small private scale creates retreats and dens within the steady area which spans over 5 tales. For instance, a studying desk inside the library stacks, an built-in hearth bench, recessed seating inside the bathe, and a meditative room with eight tatami mats. Extensive joiner’s works have been realized as an integral half all through the constructing. Straight and coiled stairways lead from the basement to the higher observatory terrace in a clean spherical choreography. The customer takes the passage alongside two-story excessive minimal home windows and apertures as excessive because the constructing. Through these openings the areas are uncovered to brilliant daylight. Wood from a 200-yr-previous oak minimize down by a stroke of lightning, native sandstone from Maulbronn, and different regionally gained supplies have been used for the inside works. Artificial and pure lightings stage inside and exterior areas. The excessive power effectivity is completed by an impermeability idea, extremely efficient thermal insulation, and a geothermal power supply with a recuperator mixed with a flooring heating system. The home windows have extremely insulated double panes with heat edge, fiberglass frames and minimal aluminum frames. Passive photo voltaic power is part of the power idea. In Phase Three, the protected native flora develops from the wild habitat (bosco) to a man-made panorama (bosco). Water runs by means of the topography and maintains ponds and basins. The rising solar shines alongside the 820-foot axis by way of all the property on the date of summer time solstice. A number of follies outline locations within the philosophical panorama: A falsification swing, a romantic relict as a goose shed, a Tetrahedron hearth, the Octrahedron, and a teahouse produced from Corten Steel, which defines a numerical microcosm within the wilderness.
