Charles de PicciottoArchitekt BDA

Falkenstein, Hamburg

On a park-like property in the west of Hamburg, on the shore of an artificial pond, a guest house with three rooms was built. The three rooms were arranged under a common saddle roof. Each room is accessed directly from the outside. Situated somewhat higher on the Elbe slope, the complex is supplemented by a shed.

Following the calm design of traditional Japanese architecture and the exclusive use of authentic building materials, a place of reflection was created with the carefully designed park, the pond and the buildings on the site.
