The young Berlin architects Ulrich Hamann and Ingo Pott designed and built an individual home for a family of four. The house features an unusual spatial concept, rigorously pursued throughout and implemented with high attention to detail. It occupies a long and narrow plot at the garden end of a villa site in Lichterfelde. The plan view is rather restrained when compared with the side elevation, which rises dramatically between the two gable-like sidewalls. Whereas the entrance is a partially souterrain design, the centre of the house is formed by a free-standing open fire.
