The OLS house, Stuttgard, Germany by J. Mayer H. und Partner | via

The OLS house is a 488m2 3-storey family home designed by J. Mayer H. und Partner as a modern concrete home full of angles and voids that still incorporates a gabled roofline to blend with the surrounding more traditional 1960s homes. Located near Stuttgart, Germany on a hillside, the home is a reinforced concrete construction with a facade of a one heat insulating compound system and large expanses of aluminum and glass windows overlooking the valley beyond. The ground level of the home consists of the foyer, utility room and spa while the second storey is the social zone and the third storey is the private volume.

Slats and anti glare sheeting offer integrated sun protection to the home, protecting it from the summer’s heat and while the shell of the home is concrete, the interior walls are drywall and the floor is a seamless layer of screed. The roof was built with a preweathered zinc plate cladding, fitted with solar panels.
