Artificially grayed larch
von | Aug 26, 2010

The "CC" house, designed by the studio lynx architecture, lies to the west of Munich. As you approach the building, you notice particular, subtle details which show the entire building from a different perspective.
The automatic sliding folding shutters on the façade, which the architecture studio developed in cooperation with an engineering studio especially for the project, are particularly noticeable. The building assumes different faces depending on the position of the shutters. The façade cladding of Siberian larch was prematurely grayed with a slightly gray-shimmering glaze to give a more homogenous look to the wood's natural graying process.

The large glass panels on the ground floor can be fully opened up to the terrace and pool area, thus expanding the living area outside. The interior of the house is dominated by fair-faced concrete walls, softly contrasting with light oak floorboards. The delicate window frames upstairs are also made of light oak, which matches the floorboards. The interior of the private home is very comfortable, with elegant furnishing finishes in the bathroom, kitchen and other rooms.
