This seasonal residence is situated in Marienthal, a village one hour north of Berlin. The proximity to the Rheinsberger Lake District and the Schorfheide-Chorin UNESCO Biosphere Reservation offers visitors the experience of nature in an incomparable setting.
The house also uses this link to nature as its leading idea. It is can be seen as a variable threshold between internal and external areas. It is perceived as one stretched space, running along the glassed garden facade. The interior is organized by repeated modules with various functions.
