Four Façade Concepts

Based on a rectangular plan, this simple building replaces an earlier house of the same form. On the ground floor is a sales area and a store; on the upper floor, an office and exhibition space. The load-bearing structure consists largely of a thermally insulated timber skeleton frame. In the area of the shop, however, the outer walls and the first floor are in a solid form of construction. Externally, the building is clad with common formwork planks articulated by glass strips of the same size. This determined not only the dimensions of the external grid, but also the form of construction. A continuous horizontal band of glazing – openable in part – extends along all faces of the building. It is complemented by conventional windows.
