Stephan Maria Lang Architects proudly introduce House LW27, a residence situated in Munich, Germany.

In a high-class residential area, a large volume of residences had to be constructed on a relatively small site. Located next to a sizeable outdoor pool, there was very little space for a garden. Therefore, a decision was made to create a rooftop garden to closely align with the concept of a zero-seal house, meaning sealed areas are given back to nature on the rooftop.

The side borders are hidden by a series of newly planted canopy trees, which provide natural sun protection. On ground level, an open floor plan flows freely from east to west along the pool. Floor-to-ceiling sliding windows allow inside/outside living throughout the year.

The upper floor features a bedroom area with ensuite bathrooms and separate dressing facilities and a lush rooftop terrace with a whirlpool that is reserved for hardworking parents.

A sensual minimalistic atmosphere is carefully detailed with great attention to natural and artificial lighting, including a unique light feature in the entree that was designed and handcrafted by world-renowned Austrian Bartenbach Light.
