Text description provided by the architects. House Erwin, which filled an empty corner site, is reviving the corner and makes it more attractive. The House accepts the height of surrounding buildings and highlights the corner by shaping it’s volume. The facade is divided into horizontal strips filled with window openings and façade cladding panels.
