House Rheder

Architecture | 23 Jan 2017

A NATURAL EXPERIENCE

 

A life in and with nature was the basic motif for the residential project House Rheder. Signed by Falkenberg Innenarchitektur, the house is located directly above the banks of the river Nethe in Germany and fulfills the purpose of functioning as a place of retreat, enjoying the surrounding landscape, away from the bustle and stress of the city.
The architecture of the house wanted to provide a full experience of the four elements - air, water, fire and earth. Originally a holiday home from the 1950s, the building was completely rebuilt in 2015, and only the floor slab and the terrace over the water remained intact. With glass facades and sliding doors which bring nature into the house, it created a seamless transition onto a timber deck with a wide view of the Rheder country park. For the fusion of interior and exterior, there is a reflection pool that projects a natural play of light onto the ceiling of the inner space, and at the same time reflects the sky and clouds itself. The heart of the house is the living space, where the minimal furnishings give the residents the freedom and the ability to create personal favourite places of retreat.
