Photographed: Uninterrupted Views
This family house near Ammersee intersects the upper slopes of a hill, staggered in a cubic formation to exploit the south-facing and uninterrupted views of the undulated landscape. The orientation of the house may have been an obvious concept from the outset, however the architects Jacob & Spreng Architekten had accomplished it with brilliance.
