In a heritage listed environment at the foot of the vineyards on the Rotenberg, this new home for a young family has been created. The historic building law with cultural heritage constraints and the difficult dimensions of the building grounds were initially quite an obstacle and did restrict the wishes of the building owners. Within these narrow constraints a pure home is created, a home with frugal details and apt quotes of past building traditions.
The shell of the home is all white. It is intended to trace the historical setting demanded by preservation of historical monuments and to illuminate it in it´s new glace. A single format for the windows with clean shutter elements opens up the facade and acts as frame for the desired vistas of the vineyards. Narrow frame profiles and flush windows give the home`s shell a skinlike apearance. The shutters` design contains historic ornaments, creating a connection to the building`s predecessor.
