Architect and builder Volker Wiese emulated the Bauhaus style when created his dream residence in Berlin. Wiese settled on a site for his new venture in the fashionable but urban region of Berlin-Grunewald where he demolished a run-down publish war building.
To secure privacy synthetic HI-MACS cladding is arranged symmetrically to form an intimate and sheltered courtyard on the within, with exciting planes and offset facades mixed with large windows.
Mindful of the connection amongst nature, sustainability and residing was pivotal to the layout. The architectural firm Kaden Klingbeil executed the sound wood frame and ceilings. Façade panels were mounted on aluminum structures, and he opted for a ventilated rain screen allowing the structures to seem much less clear.
Wiese pioneered the use of Hi-MAC panels in the house to generate not only an aesthetically attractive end result but a sustainable, weatherproof and personal residence.
