Black House: An extension near Munich designed by Buero Wagner
In Breitbrunn on Lake Ammer near Munich, Buero Wagner has inserted an extension for an intermediate space between two existing buildings in the rural area subject to the spreading of urban development. The distinct look of Black House, its interlocking levels and spaces and its seamless transition between indoors and outdoors clearly distinguishes it from its surroundings.

Next level: House in Takatsuki by Tato Architects
Tato Architects have taken the split-level concept to new heights at the ‘House in Takatsuki’. As in other projects by the architects, the building is a single-family residence offering room for living, working, cooking and sleeping on a number of floor levels, in this case 16 altogether. Resembling a surreal labyrinth in its unconventional design, the interior is reminiscent of work by M.C. Escher.
