The townhouse is located in Passau, in an area in danger of flooding. The concept for the building provides the strict separation between living areas and utility areas. The living areas are built out of solid wood and all the utility areas are unheated and built out of concrete.
Towards the street the house presents itself very introverted and closed. The units are orientated towards the back of the property, away from the much-frequented street and behind the concrete core. The house was built on a concrete base, that way the building is not only flood-proof, the concrete base also holds parking spots. On the inside, the building tells the story of its construction, raw wooden and concrete surfaces are left exposed and natural materials and colors dominate.
