House B is a gabled roof house, designed by Format Elf Architekten in 2014. Located in the urban outskirts of Munich, Germany, the home was completed after only six months of construction.
The building follows line of the houses in the street and thus continues the urban edge along the link road. The front garden area next to the street is thereby supported and the roof orientation of the surrounding buildings continued. The typical picture of a gabled roof house characteristic of the area is taken up, but is enhanced by the perforated facade and interpreted contemporarily. The roof pitches, which were determined mathematically according to the yard and setback regulations, have been implemented innovatively in the form of an asymmetrical roof in order to create maximum living space on the small plot.
The facade that faces the public space and with it the sound emissions from the road traffic contains only a small number of indented or protruded windows and is therefore more closed. On the far side of the road the building opens towards the garden with large windows. Thereby the small inner and outer areas visually merge to one combined large living space. The predominant colours and materials used on the building are reflected in the interior design. The living room is separated from the circulation area by two black furniture boxes. The white floor gives the room brightness
and depth. The timber of the Brettstapel ceiling remains visible and is repeated in the furniture, stairs and doors. Maximum residential value on a minimal plot.
