Our Readers’ Favourites: The Most Popular DETAIL-online Articles in July

In July, our readers were particularly enthusiastic about the following three articles: A Rammed Earth House and Rooftop Extension in Falkensee, the extension of the heritage-listed Sauerland Museum in Arnsberg and a spherical Orb in Leipzig, planned by Oscar Niemeyer.

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.
