This is a project by Jarosch Architektur and it is located at Sensbachtal, Germany. There are eight images for House in Sensbachtal.
The upper floor of a seventies residential house shall be extended in response to the addition of the family. The house is situated in the nature of the Forest of Odes. Indeed an unobstructed southern slope borders the building. But up to now no lines of sight or routes hither existed. The extension shall now lead out into the countryside.
On the ground floor a solid horse barn shall be accomplished. The flat roof shall allow a future addition of stories. The existing room arrangement was slightly modified. Here now are located the private rooms like guest room, nurseries and the parents’ bedroom. The new build is connected via a new corridor and the expanded bathroom. The corridor also accommodates a sauna and a fireplace.
Between both parts of the building open spaces respectfully keep distance and the same time serve as access. Living, dining and kitchen area in the new annex stretch for the whole southern façade. The close to nature building owners desired a modern architectural language as well as natural materials. The conversion had to be accomplished as rapidly as possible. The answer was construction and interior finish in wood.
The building in HTBW rests on a BSD, which covers the horse barn. Rurally and traditionally human and animal live together. Hence the upper floor makes, in addition to the loam floor heating, use of the horses’ waste heat.
