Small Home with a Simple and Smart Design in Germany

Jakob Bader Architecture have completed this small but very smart house design in Munich-Unterfoehring, Germany. Even though it features some “green” technologies, such as a geothermal pump and air ventilation systems, “House V” is not looked at as sustainable project, but more as a smart one with a low maintenance costs.  The home does not have an indoor garage, but features a very original covered parking spot. Its red exterior makes it stand out and creates a fascinating contrast with the environment. Here is more information on the design plans from the architects: “The living spaces are to the north enclosed on three sides by glass and outside by the garden. Here the planning of the house becomes obvious. The open living room, kitchen and dining spaces are arranged like a Basilica with the kitchen at the centre, the high alter of our time. The main bedroom and hidden terrace directly above the living room in the loft, are reminiscent of a winter-garden: from the bed one can observe the starry night sky, snow flakes or aeroplanes“.

    I can’t say I like it. The red is just too much and the high gloss finish is terrible. The interior has quiet a cold look/feel to it also.

    LOVE the red color used on the outside; it really pops.

    Nice ideas, but however needs a little work on the furnishings as it feels stark and empty, Also the sitting on benches under the carport looks Naff !!!!
    PS~ Add some portable room dividers and some trellising to give it some Come buy me appeal…

    Nice but way too redish. Although, in winter the red feeling may feel nice. But in the summer time….kind of gets on my nerves and makes me run away.

    Having pondered over the design in depth, I do like this very much. As i said Trellis with foliage the side and rear of carport, I personally would change some of the glass to smoked in Lounge and introduce a center divider to create 2 different zones for family Eating/social spaces and a bedroom. Upper floor could then be used as Lounge /TV room with projector and screen for privacy and entertaining with small bar area and pool table outside&add Roof blinds.The amount of blinds needed on lower floor would be really excessive in its present state and means either a good walk around or electronically controlled.Then I’d give it the THUMBS UP!!!

    I love this design. Very different but there is nothing wrong with that.

    OMG it’s disguisting! Looks like a ship container.

    Although it does look a little clinical I love the amount of light that must flood through the bedroom

    I love the red wall color. The designer very brave to try and the result very great

    What does the surrounding neighborhood look like? From what I see this house is quite unique in terms of its massing and presentation. I’d like to see how it fits in the streetscape.
