“House P is a holiday home for a family of seven from Hamburg. The house takes ques from traditional Allgäu architecture, but results in a unique, contemporary building.

House P’s geometry was generated by maximizing the property’s allowable building envelope, a classic Allgäu House with a shallow gabled roof and a full lower level, and then slicing an oblique section from that volume along its center axis. From one building emerge two: a house and a storage shed. The space between offers the family a protected courtyard for outdoor activities.

The resulting slanted rear facade together with a cantilevering stair in turn allow one to reach the main entrance on dry ground. The building’s canted shape also results in an impressive and generous interior space. In the main living room, a large picture window offers majestic views of the surrounding mountains. The upper and lower floors are linked by a double-height living and dining room with a gallery.
