House P, Eisenach
Modern design in a historic residential area
This house was built on the outskirts of the listed villa settlement “Marienhöhe” in the Südviertel district of Eisenach. The challenge was to adapt the building to the fashionable surrounding residential development and to the steeply sloping plot of land with the adjacent woods. The communicative centre point of this house is the garden level with its fireplace and generous, floor-to-ceiling windows, which can be opened via sliding doors. The open floor plan provides magnificent views and a life close to nature – the exterior space can be appreciated and brought into the home. The bedrooms on the ground floor are completely glazed on one side of the room and boast a terrace with views of the countryside. The studio is situated in the attic and is connected to the partially “green” roof terrace.
