One word sums it up: ZEN
Peaceful simplicity surrounds this modernist japanese influenced simple box-shaped house tucked within a small hill in the outskirts of the historical town of Tübingen, Germany, resulting in a serene and cultural interior. Devided on three stories the luxurious and understated house brings nature inside through large, expansive floor to ceiling glazings that allow a view of the surrounding landscape from every angle. The large sliding glass doors connecting the garden bring serene, natural views indoors. A glass balustrade shelters the dining and living area from the wind. The concept for the design developed out of the need to maximise sun ingress and enable visual engagement to the beauty of the vistas towards the valley. Dappled light entering the home through the tree canopy in the center courtyard creates a changing athmosphere throughout the day. Internally this contrast between exposure and shelter is mirrored in the use of both dark wood, the brown and black interior design versus transluscent glass. The outside deck area with exclusive modern outdoor furniture, a large rectangular pool and lush lavender plantings provides ultimate privacy for the family to celebrate long summer nights and letting all tensions melt away..
