All the tiny hairs on the back of my neck stood on end the moment I walked through the entrance door. A sight of unexpected grandeur greeted me. The staircase and red-glowing pendants led my eye up to the top of the double-height space. A gallery bridge links the bedroom areas on the first floor. Back on the ground floor and beyond the elegant staircase is a generously-sized open-plan living area. A two-storey vertical window floods the internal space with daylight while framing the garden and sky. It is the focal point of the house. Here one can sit in the window seat next to the matt black cylindrical fireplace, overseeing what’s going on both inside and outside.

A joint commission between the architect, the main contractor and the joiner, led to a comprehensive shoot. The furniture throughout is bespoke to each space, a modern combination of wood and black metal.
The realisation of the house had featured in Träumhäuser, a television show on Bayerische Rundfunk. Click here to read more about the showing.
