Creative Facade

Here’s something you don’t see everyday! In the exquisite and contradictory city of Berlin, where contemporary, avant-garde and high tech blend wonderfully, Brandt + Simon Architekten studio has recently completed this eco-friendly single family house. The pixel-like facade is the result of using peculiar green tiles, giving you the feeling that you are admiring an 8-bit design, that happens to be…someone’s home! The house features solar energy panels. Plenty of eco materials have been used in defining it (the most impressive being the recycled paper) in order to reflect a green (both literally and metaphorically) living space.

The tiles create a certain shading (thanks to the gradient aspect), showcasing a subtle home that blends with the trees and the vegetation, without creating too much buzz. Anyway, we are not saying that this is an invisible home, but if you look at it from a considerable distance it won’t just stand out. Behind the pixel-like facade, there lies a timber frame construction. The interior is all wrapped in white emphasizing a hypnotic swirly staircase.
