What a simple yet strange design idea: an interior living room area that slides out like a drawer to become a cantilevered exterior balcony space overlooking an historic square in Germany.
The rest of the interior space is equally compelling, filled with wall niches that let in light and serve as shelving units to store odds and ends collected by the owners, a (post)modern white space with offbeat wood, stone and other more colorful accents and decor.
While this is certainly an extreme design idea, the architects nonetheless did keep the context in mind. The windows, while more frequent and regularly spaced than those of the surrounding buildings, are contextual in their size and proportions. The roof line has a familiar angle that also allows this offbeat home to blend in with its surrounding architectural context.
