Nobis House by Susanne Nobis
Architect Susanne Nobis created this nice little retreat by the lake in Berg, a popular southern Bavarian recreation area for the residents of the nearby city of Munich.
“As both the client and the designer, engineer/architect Nobis designed the home and office for her own four-member family and for her architectural practice.
It is a beautifully minimalist, modern take on a traditional twin wooden boathouse, popular by the lake. While the boathouses are on stilts over the water, Nobis’s house is on 60-centimeter high illuminated legs.
This gives the house its wonderful, impermanent, hovering feel but it was in fact a necessity in this location where the ground water rises very high. This also meant that everything must fit in the space above ground — no basement or cellar possible.”Architecture Posted on October 30, 2011
