A House with two apartments and a studio for a physiotherapist
This project has been realized in 2005 in the beautiful city of Roßdorf (Thuringia) in Germany. A married couple and three kids live in this ecologically friendly house with clay plaster on the walls and a heating concept based on the sustainable raw material wood. The terrace in the first floor offers a great view over the whole valley. The facade is covered with horizontal wood panels.
Feng Shui has been an important issue for the owners as well. They wanted timber of a very specific quality, cut in the neighborhood forest within a certain time window determined by the phase of the moon. The dewatering of the roof works drop-wise as there is no gutter installed. From inside, during rain times, the atmosphere reminds one of a house in the middle of a rain forest. The acoustic impact shall not be forgotten.
These and other "special features" of the house make it a unique project for globe-PM. In the basement the lady of the house runs a studio for physical therapy and she also organizes wellness and relaxation events for visitors who can spend the night in the rooms below the roof.
