Located in Taunus mountain range in north of Frankfurt, the Residence Z is a private house for family of five, is the remodeled result of a 1920s villa.
A pipe-like shell was imposed on the existing building, the new hip roof and facades are wrapped in dark-weathered copper sheet.
The entrance area has updated as enclosed exterior space and it adds more volume to the northside that is inhabited by the new interior spaces.
The roof is also folding a irregular triangle geometries new interior space, generated out of functional aspects a very specific and individual structure.
Inspiration from architect:
Just as the existing building is sitting as a concrete element in the new shell and is providing its form – the new living spaces are added as inscribed volumes to the pipe-like shell.
