H16 consists of two cubic volumes that blend harmoniously into the soft landscape of the Swabian Alb on a hillside site. One is a transparent cube made of glass, the other a solid cube made of black concrete.
Two Cubes with Panoramic View
Both structures provide a panoramic view of a high valley. The facade of the glass cube consists of large-format glass with dimensions of 2.36 x 3.63 metres. This achieves the desired maximum transparency and openness, allowing for living in dialogue with the surrounding landscape. An open floor plan supports this effect.
