Museum building at a steep site: Sauerland Museum extension by Bez + Kock
The architects Bez + Kock have renovated Sauerland Museum in the Landsberger Hof, a heritage-listed edifice in Arnsberg, and built it an extension at the adjacent steep slope.

A New Building and an Addition: Rammed-Earth House and Rooftop Extension in Falkensee
Architect Gereon Legge has not only expanded the top of his home by a studio space, he has also added a small rammed-earth house to the garden. Inspired by nature, the project in Falkensee is based on time-honoured building techniques. Thanks to its unconventional shape, the attic space is a spatial wonder, while the summer cabin has become a place of tranquillity.
