Haus D, Bad Wiessee
The house on the lake refers to the local boat and fishing houses and follows the tradition of rural construction by the water. Lightness, a low-slung structure and a firm emphasis on the horizontal determine the design.
The timber construction of the house – mostly from local woods – is elevated to protect it from flood. The wooden walkway that surrounds the house widens into a terrace at the lakeside, completely covered by the steep saddleback roof. The vertical timber formwork of the facades is untreated, with generous glazings in between.
