a facade for the agglomeration

the size of the building, the placement and the size of openings relate to the buildings in the neighbourhood.

as a new element wood paneling is introduced. wood as a material and trees may be present in the agglomeration but wood on fassades has only been used on rare old farm buildings that have been swamped by the agglomeration.

in principle we take the traditional wood paneling with laths in two layers that are nailed on top of each other and pull the layers slightly apart. thus we generate depth without allowing unwanted insights

for the opening variants arise playing with depth and using the laths for constructive details.

on the inside finishes are kept simple and unobtrusive.
