Black on White - Studio House

Architect: fabi architekten bda

Location: Regensburg, Germany

This house consists of two buildings. One is black with a saddle roof, and the other is a white box. The first cantilevers and is rotated in a way that complements the second. Located on a hillside, the composition intrudes minimally into the natural landscape. The totality of the house is progressively revealed as one descends the gravel slope.

Fully glazed walls in the direction of the wooded valley open the house on both floors. The upper floor, containing the kitchen and living area, has sliding doors that open onto a roof terrace.
