“Sure, that is what you want: a villa within the inexperienced with a big terrace, the Baltic Sea in entrance, Friedrichstrasse behind: with a stupendous view, rural stylish, and from the toilet, you possibly can see the Zugspitze – however within the night, you are not removed from the cinema…” wrote Kurt Tucholsky in Berlin in 1927 in his humorous poem “Superb and Actuality,” concluding with “Each happiness has a catch. We would like a lot: to have. To be. And to matter. That somebody has all of it: that’s uncommon.”
In fact, we’re not by the ocean, however nearly. The lake view from the primary ground is breathtaking. Within the foreground, sailboats sway within the harbor, within the background, the kitschy blue Attersee and the mountains. And sure, the home can also be rural stylish. Within the backyard, it is extra rural, inside, it is diminished, nearly ascetic.
There’s not a lot besides for easy wooden, concrete, a number of skinny metal columns, and plenty of transparency to the skin. On this ethereal, refined ambiance, life is nice. Solely the massive metropolis just isn’t instantly behind, as with Tucholsky. However having all of it is uncommon, as the author and journalist precisely noticed a century in the past.
There wasn’t a lot area on the small plot. That is why there weren’t so many choices for putting the amount. The home is slender and lengthy, nestling in opposition to the western edge. This retains the backyard as giant as attainable whereas guaranteeing a great view. All the pieces is oriented “inwards” in direction of the backyard on the bottom ground. Solely on the primary ground does the home virtually change orientation and face the lake, overlooking the street in entrance. Like a lookout, every little thing might be seen from right here.
Externally, the home can also be modest. The pitched roof corresponds to the typology discovered right here. The clear type of the picket development and its black-lacquered picket facade attracts inspiration from the various boathouses across the lake.
