„We do not think in rooms, more in areas“, was the guiding principle set by a young family in the very beginning. After a total of 5 years of planning and construction, we were able to hand over a house with a consistent space continuum and a fluent transition between the inside and the outside.

The outstanding property is located on a slope side with a panoramic view over the valley. The Saarbrücken villa consists of three storeys and orients all bustling areas towards the view. The differently aligned „wings“ develop an inviting gesture for the entrance yard and a garden with a character of a forest clearing.

In order to implement the goal of a integrated design, the interior consists of an uniform material composition and even kitchen, bathroom and all cabinet surfaces are individually designed as integral parts of the overall architecture. The lightning in these areas is mainly characterized by architectural integrated light.

The outdoor facilities represent a visual extension of the interior. They support the overall concept of spatial zones and define different areas such as terraced garden, barbecue area, forrest terrace and sauna courtyard and therefore create different quality of stay for the young family.
