House Philipp by Philipp Architekten

By • Oct 23, 2013

House Philipp is located in Waldenburg, Germany, and was designed by Philipp Architekten.

It covers an area of 3370 square feet, all bright and clean spaces, with an emphasis on order and serenity.

House Philipp by Philipp Architekten:

“House Philipp is situated on a small mountain ridge in Southern Germany with a view to the north. To meet this specific situation, the cube of the main house was completely glazed with frameless windows. This way the residents enjoy both the sun and the 80-kilometres (50-miles) distant view.

There is a cube placed in this glass box as a key element, completely panelled with Elm Wood. It contains both the kitchen and staircase and at the same time it forms the static backbone for the attic placed on it.

Only few materials as the light gray natural stone, elm or oak wood, and smooth white plaster surfaces determine the ascetic architecture. Purism, which even shows in the landscape gardening.”
