House S

Initially built in the 60′s by architect Wilfried Hilger for his family, House S was recently redesigned by German studio CHRIST.CHRIST.Associated Architects. The existing single-level bungalow was cleverly transformed into a two-story contemporary residence. Located in Wiesbaden, Germany, the modern dwelling is a masterpiece of contemporary urban developments, creating a balanced volumetric architecture that allows further building if necessary. The roof line creates new opportunities in residential dwelling, especially since the new family of four living here needed more space, but did not have enough room on the property to build more.
