Located in Wiesbaden, Germany, this remarkable contemporary residence was once a bungalow, built in the ‘60s by architect Wilfried Hilger. Several decades later, German studio CHIRST.CHIRST. Associated Architects renovated the house and added an extra level on the cantilevered roof. Called House S, the residence is now used by a family of four.
The flat roof area was transformed into a special building site on which three independent “boxes” were placed. They are connected by a glass corridor and have different functions: one is a personal living room, one is a home office, and the third one holds a master bedroom, a bathroom and a dressing room.
The original building was also upgraded to a contemporary style. The first floor was stripped of most of its walls to make room for a large, open living room, with direct access to the open kitchen. Also on this floor one ca find the two children’s rooms with bathroom and dressing room. The ground floor holds an additional apartment and the guest room.
