Güth & Braun Architekten + DYNAMO Studio | House Pünktchen Condensed version

The existing neoclassic house from mid 19th century was relegated to the urban anonymity due to aggressive renovations after World War II. Despite the decadent state of the building, the clients acknowledged  traces of previous qualities. The drive to bring back to life these lingering and latent qualities by complementing them with a warm and contemporary design became the concept of the project. The objective was to synthesize a united entity feeding from the old and the new rather than pursuing contrast between them.

The facade deepends the layering theme by using massive horizontal sandstone pieces. Other areas of the stone facade were carved with a fine and delicate ornamental pattern turning its natural massive appearance into a nearly textile-like lightness.

The different elements on the facade are not linked to a strict order but rather formed a collage. The interior design applies a reduced and precise selection of materials combining the variety of the existing and the added elements to a harmonic and comfortable synthesis.
