Contemporary two-story house plan with a walkout basement and flat roof
From the street the facade of the house looks like a cube with almost no windows. Not surprisingly, because the Kiffer family from Luxembourg places great importance on privacy and economy. But there are other good reasons. Their new home must meet the most modern environmental standards. The passive house standard requires that the northern facade has as few windows as possible to minimize heat loss. A garage for two cars isolates the living areas and is a kind of porch of the house. At the same time, the south facade faces the garden. The building opens up on all three levels, giving breathtaking views from the windows. The natural topography of the hill part is preserved. A clear language of forms is also shown here.
The Baufritz plan has already won several awards.
Simple lines have been consistently applied in the interior. Straight lines underline the open architecture with the gallery on the ground floor. The living room, dining room, kitchen area, and office have been designed as a single space. If necessary, the office can be divided by means of sliding doors. Floor-to-ceiling windows with triple glazing, around the dining room and kitchen, enliven the design. The parapet terrace is made of glass to enjoy the landscape and the ever-changing play of colors. Upstairs is a straight staircase. For parents, there are rooms all over the width of the garden house. The bedroom, dressing room and bathroom are next to each other. There is also another room for owners - a spacious library. Two of the three children's rooms overlook the street. The Kiffer family has two bathrooms next to the bedrooms so there is no crowding around the bathrooms in the mornings.
