The Schierle house one of these village, located at the outskirts of Munich, a simple geometry was adopted for the house, combining two solid volumes enabling not only to maintain but improve the neighboring homes view over the valley. The great windows placed at the south façade allow the maximum use of natural light, while the 4-meter-hight obtained through vertical shifting to adapt to ground displacement takes advantage of the currents ascending the slope to ventilate interiors in summer.
White is the companion for the peace of the sleeping and resting areas. The volume containing the spaces to be shared by the family was characterized through facades and a slate-stone roof. Working with Rathscheck Schiefer, a special emphasis was placed on developing the capabilities to build with slate stone, stressing the solution of corner details. – Matthias Benz Architect.
