Concrete is the main component used to build ‘Fünf Häuser’ (Five Houses) but when looking at the façade, every storey seems different. From a grey concrete surface to a façade clad in green shingles, as reference to the colourful exteriors of classic single houses, every part stacked over another is rather individual.
With ‘Fünf Häuser’, Lukas Lenherr mashed up different kinds of buildings and architectural principles to create a collage honouring the history and identity of the surrounding area. The building–now home to four families – is indeed a combination of five houses piled up on each other: a garden villa, an apartment normally found in multi-storey buildings, a classic family home,a pavilion and a holiday cottage.
