Wohnhaus Köln Hahnwald
The extraordinary building was designed for and around the desired swimming pool. As the heart of this home, it defines the architecture and the whole of the living space. The imposing exterior obtains momentum from an off-setting of the upper floor plate, which in turn frames the overall structure of the building. For the distinctive look of the façade and interior elements, a natural stone of matte grey quartzite from Vals, Switzerland was selected.
Statement of the jury
The design for the residential building is inspired down to the last detail by the swimming pool, around which the building is practically designed. This can be seen in both its outer styling as well as the design of the living areas. A beautiful detail is the façade covered in natural stone that reminds the fascinating play of light on a lightly rippled surface of water.
