New housing developments suffer from a lack of living quality. There are no similarities – neither form nor orientation and material and also no place for community. Autistic buildings arise in total separation and without relationship. These buildings ignore our most precious value – the landscape – it is mistreated by them.Save this picture!© Christian BrandstaetterSpaceOur answer to the request for a semi-detached house were given with two similar towers standing near each other and creating a space – in front and in between. The building site is defined by the building restriction line and the definition of the maximum height. It is an experiment to create public space in this area of privacy – qualities known from old villages.A familiar togetherness instead of the anonymous side by side.Save this picture!© Christian BrandstaetterOrganisationThe two tower houses are organised in 4 floors.Cellar: wellness area, technicGround floor: sleeping areaSave this picture!Floor PlanFirst floor: cooking and living areaAttic: viewSave this picture!© Christian BrandstaetterVertical circulation is organised by a very compact core and a hydraulic ramp for barrier-free usage.Save this picture!SectionConstructionThe two wooden towers are founded on a common concrete base.
