New House At Ingoldingen
Oberschwaben, Germany

A new house for a musician, a biochemist, and their two boys, on a plot among other new houses on the edge of the small village of Ingoldingen, which has a distant view of the Alps on a clear day. The house has a music room for teaching and home concerts, living and dining spaces suitable for entertaining, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Many people build more-or-less identical kit houses on such plots, but this bespoke house is highly individual - fitting its site and tailored closely to its inhabitants' needs, from music and cooking to somewhere for planting the basil where slugs can't reach it. The house also responds to specific planning rules which established the position of the building on the plot, finished ground floor level, eaves level, the angle of the roof pitch, the direction of the roof ridge, and the percentage of dormer window possible.
