C18 Architects has built a residential house with a studio for the jewellery designer Georg Spreng and his family. Towards the street the building is closed; it attracts attention with its cladding of white square tiles. The buildings cubic shape also distinguishes it from its neighbours. Even if the house is closed towards the street, it doesn’t close itself to the neighbours. A tower room with a window facing the street positions the building in the neighbourhood. No fence hinders visitors from entering the premises and looking over a wall onto a pond in an open atrium and into the living area.
C18 Architects have designed an exceptional house. A house which gives you lust, makes you lust for living and lust for the countryside. And as unconventional as it may be in the neighbourhood – it fits in. It is a known fact that it’s not easy to pull the wool over the eyes of people from the Alb. Life was too hard to risk relying on somebody else without question.”
