The House on the Moor
The intelligent use of typical, regional architectural elements – proven through centuries and without superficial, old-fashioned decorations − is typical of his style. For the roof, he has chosen the traditional saddle roof – though in a contemporary interpretation. The longhouse is the logical answer to the request for “living and working under one roof”.
Like a simple barn, the long, wooden structure of the house puts the finishing stroke to a line of single-family houses at the edge of the village. The house completes the settled area stretching towards the moor and bridges countryside and village. This is symbolised by the gesture of the open entree between the major and the minor components and the combination of untreated silver fir and velvety concrete. Refined and genuine in all details, it is a clear and modest statement – the perfect answer to the location.
