Hornung and Jacobi Architecture completed the Hafner Property, located in Büschelhof, Germany, in 2012.
The modern home stands in contrast with the verdant countryside that surrounds it, even though at the very same time it welcomes it by the use of wide glass walls to let natural light indoors.
Home Hafner by Hornung and Jacobi Architecture:
“The web site of the residence is situated in the countryside next to a forest in southern Germany. The residence is situated at the finish of a blind alley and advantages from the website facing the forest and valley. Therefore a very higher level of privacy is supplied by the protection from getting seen or unauthorised access, which makes an open living attainable. The slight remodelling of the topography with a provided height distinction of 3 meters (9.8 feet) inspired the choreography and orientation of the creating alike.
The residential creating is created for a couple with an independent region for guests. The design and style of the property is divided into two components: a single introverted area, articulated by an arrangement with smaller openings following the surrounding typology of the neighbourhood. The counterpart of that is an extroverted region facing the forest and the lovely view of the valley. The exterior space is interpreted as an extension of the open living region.
The abstracted shape of the gabled roof draws an analogy to the surrounding roof shapes, which is typical in southern Germany. The transformation to an open cubic design produced a maximum size of openings feasible, as nicely as the visual merging of living and nature.”
