Original Character of 19th Century Building Revitalized: The Pünktchen Project 1

We highly appreciate the redesign of this building in Germany, the result of a fruitful collaboration between Güth & Braun Architekten and DYNAMO Studio. The Pünktchen project consisted in adding a modern twist to a neoclassic house from mid 19th century, despite its decadent state: “The drive to bring back to life lingering and latent qualities by complementing them with a warm and contemporary design became the concept of the project. The objective was to synthesize a united entity feeding from the old and the new rather than pursuing contrast between them”, explained the architects.

While the main facade of the house expresses loyalty to the classic origins of the building, the opposite side facing the garden is a collage of old and contemporary design. As you enter, creativity unfolds. The three levels of the residence are connected through a spiral-shape wooden staircase, setting a dynamic inner tone. Vaulted ceilings here, inclined walls there, splashes of color and surprising lighting sources make this place unique and inspiring.
