The Elegant Minimalism of Germany’s House P

64 architecture

House P by Philipp Architekten seems braced as if against the distant view across Waldenburg, Germany.

It is almost as if the building is a dragon about to chomp up this incredible landscape.

The house gazes out over a horizon that seems to stretch to the ends of the earth.

Setting a solid yet airy minimalist tone overlooking this view, great slabs of white limestone create a dining table in the view space.

The front of the house appears to float above the ‘dragons teeth’ at the front of the house.

Its bulk seems to be supported only by a wooden central core within.

This wooden core at the front of the house contains the kitchen like a booth in a mall.

This cube, completely panelled with elm wood, is a key element inside the glass box front.

The back of the booth contains the staircase to the private rooms upstairs.

Upstairs, the master bedroom is surrounded by clean white light.

Three boys are handsomely housed in a play space that is both elegantly minimal and a wide open space for childish fun.

Their bathroom is sturdy and efficient, making such minimalism make sense for children.

A wonderful deep white box forms the very no-nonsense sink with a clean lines.

The parents bathroom is similarly pared-down, but with an adult sophistication.

Outside, simple white box shapes create a similarly pared down picnic table and seating.

The very long horizon is emphasised by converging white slabs above and below.

Following the land form down, a step down ledge separates the living space from the eating space in front.

The cube of the main house was completely glazed with frameless windows, to maximise both the sun and the 80-kilometres distant view.

To one side a serene pool reflects Germany’s airy white skies.

The architects deploy an ascetic approach using just light gray natural stone, elm or oak wood, and smooth white plaster surfaces.

The purist paradise of House Philipp is situated on a small mountain ridge in Southern Germany with a view to the north.
