Our subject is perched atop a hill gazing over the town of Heilbronn with rolling vineyards leading the eye far into the distance. Here at the House on the Fichtestrasse, the architects at Biehler Weith Associated have demonstrated a style with individual perspective.The static impression of the original cubic building (1929) has been unified with new elements in a dynamic spatial design, contributing a contemporary analogy to tranquil desires.Following the architects’ sensitive decision-making process the new project generates a continuously changing glance at the old. The liveliness of the interior, with a newly constructed spatial depth provides continuity with the view outside. The spatial interference of the exterior form in relation to the interior radiates with postrenovation vitality.Timeless ambiguity is emphasized once more through the choice of materials. The old brick-walled building has been newly clad with a composite thermal insulation system, its surface refined with a high-quality exterior plaster. In contrast, the new addition -constructed entirely from concrete- has sewn a dynamic thread through the previously existing edifice.In order to accentuate the vivid character of the new building the architects chose aluminum sandwich panels to clad the facade. These aluminum splices highlight the fresh, dynamic edges of the new contour. Old and new elements are harmonious, yet their contrast was at the forefront in the design vocabulary of Biehler Weith Associated. The House on the Fichtestrasse is ageless, beaming with unity while leaving a striking atmospheric impression.
