STEINMETZDEMEYER: maison keiffer

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.

  • i live in a city that it is mandatory to put a roof in every building you design (local laws for maintaning the character of the city).
    I always thought that was damaging to hole idea for something new as far as architecture is conserned and here is an brilliand example that i was wrong.

  • Yes…as dbkii infers, time might not work in this project’s favor; it also seems a long way to go for what in the end becomes a “one-liner”. I wish the premise would have informed the architecture, and the idea allowed to operate at the level of thesis, rather than reverting to a pleasant, albeit intellectually disappointing design idea.

  • like it.
    but not the sketchup-photoshop-“rendering”

  • Very eloquent, although it will be interesting to see how well the inside/outside wall of cedar looks several years down the road when the outside has aged from the weather and the inside has not.
