2 problems solved: a pitched roof adorn + a new home for the family of the project architect, Ulla Hell.
The result, an innovative "skin" or covering that leads to interstitial indoor-outdoor spaces. In this project, the existing under-utilized roof space gives way to an angular crown, connected to a ground floor reception space and architectural office by the host’s renovated spine.
Interstitial spaces between the exterior walls and
wooden bands swell at ground level to offer sheltered outdoor living spaces. The most spectacular view of this home is a skylit corridor. This opening delivers an immediate reading of exterior weather conditions,
collecting precipitation and receiving direct sunlight.
