Set on a southwestern slope, the view over the hilly landscape of Taunus inspired the shape of this structure.

The building’s geometry mediates between the neighboring structures. A white, L-shaped volume – containing the bedrooms on the upper floor – hovers over the U-shaped living area on the ground floor. The basement is extensively inscribed into the slope and contains the guest- and the Wellness/SPA-area.

Energy scheme

The lack of a gas supply line was the initial point for developing the structure’s energy scheme. The latter implied the usage of geothermal energy being the most ecologically worthwhile and forward-looking solution.
