Originally planned as „Auszugshaus“ (a smaller building constructed on an existing farmstead for the retired farm owners), the timber frame house with its partial and naturally pre-greyed spruce wood facade, accommodates different generations of the family. Next to the main house, it looks like a little brother. Like all COMMOD houses, the modular house was built using a timber frame construction with cellulose insulation.
The urban empty space in the courtyard of the main building was efficiently and flexibly utilized for urban redensification through the use of a cellulose-insulated ecological modular construction system. To allow the greatest possible incidence of light on the gable end, the ridge purlin is supported on a wooden column behind the glass layer, and the entire cross-section is designed as an exposure area.
The overheight ceiling of the gable roof, designed with tin shingle roofing and hidden guttering, which is in sandy-beige color shades in harmony with the overall concept, opens the kitchen-living room up in height and uses it right under the roof to generate more room volume on a reduced footprint.
