House CJ-5 by Caramel Architekten

Located in a neighborhood with building heights limited to 7.5 meters, the House CJ-5 is a single-family residence designed as a high FAR (floor area ratio) and low-energy urban home.

This white building has a narrow layout of 5 x 35 m, with a generous central atrium garden and terrace, continued as an inner white cube in the studio/garage and in the basement cinema.

Inspiration from architect:

The ‘room in room system’ creates views through all the rooms of the living and office areas and out onto the central external element, the garden atrium.

This creates a spatial continuum which extends via the central kitchen landings as part of the landscape of the staircase and the studio, to the bedroom area on the upper storey.
