Splendid Architecture, “House at the Park”
'house at the park' by german practice splendid architecture is a residential house
for a family of six in hamburg, germany. true to its name, the site of the project
is an old tree population with a large number of trees in and around the grounds.
the design aims to integrate this precondition into the architectural concept rather
than oppose it.
built on piles, the house features a large inner courtyard that pivots around an established
tree. largely open in terms of both air and glazing on the south side, the dwelling opens
up to the park with overlapping indoor-outdoor spaces. the covered patio space is built
around a tree trunk which offers a dynamic and organic architectural element to the
outdoor space. using a fluid and continuous structural form, the design aims to effortlessly
exist with the environment.
