Archetypical garden house made flexible to the maximum by Vécsey&Schmidt
Vécsey & Schmidt Architekten keep it simple when designing a garden house suited to all year round use near Freiburg, Germany. Erected in place of an old barn, the architects made only minimal interventions in the shape and interior of the original building. On the outside, the boundary wall merges with the wall of the garden house. The wall and the steep roof are divided by a cornice that has the same wooden ornament that covers the gables.
Inside, each corner serves a single function, divided by double swing doors. These doors can be set into three positions, creating three different spaces. This simple and effective solution allows freedom to the users to alter the house in accordance with their needs or changes in the climate.
The floor plan of the attic is even more minimal; here the removeable gates are what provide movement. When opened, the lattice work of the gables is exposed, further enhancing the feeling of airiness. With such basic alterations the Basel-based studio managed to bring out the maximum of an otherwise archetypical little building.
