“Schreber Addition to an Existing Miners’ House, 2011.
Weaving the New into the Old. This small 1920s estate house with a large garden – acquired by the clients in the winter of 2010 – is located on the northern periphery of the city of Aachen. A two-storey, fifty sqm extension was added to the seventy sqm house to cater to the spatial needs of the new owner family with three children. The original building is a simple brick structure with a clinker façade.
One of the main questions during the design phase was, »how to extend?«
The intention was that the extension and the partially new roof convert the existing simple building structure into a generous, open, compact residential home, which carried forward the simplicity of the existing materials using contemporary means.”
