luxembourger practice STEINMETZDEMEYER have sent along images of their project ‘maison kieffer’, a residence within a traditional
neighborhood in luxembourg which celebrates a contemporary appearance, without losing the area’s topological gabled roof.
red cedar cladding surfaces all facets of the exterior, doubling also as a shingle replacement. accentuating the generated section,
black cement fiber panels clad the triangulated side elevation to contrast the warm-hued lumber planks.
glass doors at the ground floor’s perimeter open to the garden and patio which encompass the house. the upper level children’s rooms
feature an elongated dormer window to remove the sloped ceilings and maximize the play areas. the master and guest bedrooms
retain the character of the gable from the interior.
