6 split level houses
Residential complex Altlengbach
Project: Construction of a residential complex with 6 split level houses
Status: Design & Built Permit
Client: Freydis GmbH
Steep plots of land on a slope always present a particular design challenge. Therefore it made sense to make the topography of the area the main design topic.
The houses appear unobtrusive and small on the street side, the facade opens up towards the garden and valley and the living rooms receive a lot of light and a fantastic view of the beautiful landscape.
In my opinion, split-level floor plans are basically a wonderful way of giving a hillside house a very special spatial character, with this project in Altlengbach, we went one step further. The split level incorporates the basement and ground floor into the steep incline. However, we put a flat upper floor on top of that. As a result, the ceiling height of the living area increases from 2.5m to 3.75m in slope direction. The spatial effect is enormous.
We checked the room configuration and the lighting situation in the early design stage using a virtual reality Headset.
This also creates an interesting effect in terms of urban planning. The houses appear unobtrusive
and small on the street side, the facade opens up towards the garden and valley and the living rooms are rewarded with plenty of light and a fantastic view of the beautiful landscape.
