At the edge of the Bavarian Alps. Encircled by the lake and the mountains – and a spectacular view.
The house is uniquely characterized by the exposed roof truss made of hand-selected mature timber. The solid wood beams and broad planks are in line with the region’s best traditional craftsmanship. Dark and lived-in wooden surfaces are a recurring element in all of the rooms. The wall panelling, made of roughly sawn old oak, has a captivating aesthetic and tactile effect.
So do the deerskin covered panels at the fireplace that dramatically span from the eaves to the roof truss. They are a soft, but no less lively contrast to the dark wood.
The project thrives on the art of integrating the most diverse surfaces and materials. Straight lines. Clear shapes. Strong contrasts. Modern design meets refined craftsmanship. The result is a contemporary and authentically familiar living experience.
