The plot of the house Falkensee is set back from the street and is accessed by its own driveway. The archetypal cubature references the shape of a barn. Inside is developed a modern and compact residential program, which does not require significant circulation areas. In the southern area, the collective uses of cooking, dining, living gather under the entire half of the roof, while the individual bedrooms are oriented to the north. A central buffer zone, which contains bathrooms and technical room on the first floor, establishes the necessary degree of privacy. Above these functional spaces, each room receives a gallery, each of which is accessible via its own staircase. The load-bearing components of the house are built according to the principle of wooden post and beam construction. Cellulose wood fiber were used as insulation material for the roof, exterior walls and floor. The facades were clad with rough-sawn larch wood planks. The roof is covered with trapezoidal sheet metal. The construction method is distinguished by the choice of renewable building materials. In addition, an economical implementation was achieved through compact spatial planning and concentration on substantial and cost-effective materials. The common room opens to the south via a wide floor-to-ceiling window front with two opening casements to the garden. An adjoining terrace underscores the communal family character of the house.
