A delicate stroke of the brush…

visible in the multiple facets of the metamorphosis of the Spitzer house. In a symbiosis of trust between owner and architect dreams have been sensed, understood, and finally realised. A cooperation culminating in an elegant, modern, inspirational, and also functional architecture – perceived both by its inhabitants, its contemplators, and its planners.

An old building, panelled with dark wood, mighty piers of wall, and an overhanging roof gave the original building in existence a stocky and dark appearance – neither up-to-date in its architecture nor satisfying in its functionality.

By introducing a clear architectural language, delicate and explicitly defined, this original character has been completely erased. A well-proportioned and well-structured object with calm window openings now provide the outer frame, which develops even further in the clarity and spaciousness of the interior.

Here the need for living space was met by pointedly set, straightforward extensions giving the two-storied room an airy and generous appeal.

Emphasis is not only put on the different shades of light and colours but also on lavishly embracing nature.

A delicate stroke of the brush… making emotions swing….
