The house is set in a particularly leafy street in Hamburg's district Eppendorf. Clarity in design, individualization because of a specific material choice and a special attention to the detail are the most obvious features of this building. Its appearance owes the house the hand-carved stone from the series Kolumba of the brickworks Petersen Tegl, which was developed jointly with the Swiss architect Peter Zumthor for his museum project in Cologne. The dark tone enhances the contrast of the bright aluminum profiles of the windows, and for the silver-gray terrace parapet made of larch wood. Recessed joints accentuate the extraordinary proportions of the clinker. The clever arrangement of the building structure and floor plans combined with large windows provides light-filled interiors.
