The existing house was reconstructed, extended and cut in two, the new construction is an exact and slightly raised hexahedron.

The facade made of exposed concrete, the rigorous structure on the outside with radical ramps, batters and graded terraces forms the starting point of the estate.

The wild landscape of the Black Forest is artificially enclosed. Along the 250 m long axis of summer solstice the artificial landscape frees itself to a natural and wild habitat.

Inspiration from architect:

The protected local flora develops from the wild habitat to an artificial landscape. Water runs through the topography and maintains ponds and basins. The rising sun shines along the 250 m axis through the whole estate on the date of summer solstice.
