Haus F, Kronberg, Germany
A house with a secluded rural plot is the enduring dream of client and architect alike. When Meixner Schlüter Wendt Architekten were approached to create a new structure in an existing orchard, overlooking a picturesque wooded valley, they drew on an unexpected combination of influences, including traditional summer cabins and fighter planes. Tasked with accommodating local design guidelines and their clients’ desire for something different, the new house features a pitched roof, deemed essential in this residential neighbourhood.
