Modern houses

Timeless houses by the best architects

Here you can see a selection of our best modern houses from over 20 years of experience in planning & project development. The expertise of our architects is manifested in over 90 such realized projects in modern architecture with sculptural aspirations.

Modern architecture – the pioneers

The Bauhaus, de Stijl and the architects of the International Style still have an impact today. They form the tradition that still characterizes the best modern designs. On this basis, we aim to achieve further development with every new project. If you compare the first of our buildings with those of recent years, you can see this evolution. From small detached houses, modern semi-detached houses and apartment buildings to modern luxury villas, we have now realized almost all types of residential buildings several times and have always learned something new in the process, as well as always taking at least one step forward.

Our selected projects with different roof shapes and property situations. Timeless houses in a straightforward design language or sculptural architecture as individual one-off buildings.

Modern luxury villa in Balgach with pool

This villa was not only intended to be a new home for the family, but also to provide space for the very extensive art collection. An art collector from Switzerland commissioned us with the design and the associated planning for implementation. The modern villa on a hillside with breathtaking valley views impresses with its special utilization concept with underground parking and integrated pool as well as the highly effective integration of works of art into the interior design. Various niches as well as wall and floor surfaces were designed for pictures and sculptures. The client and his family are delighted with the positive impact of the villa.

“A wonderful shape, the slanted angles are a unique idea. The valley view can be enjoyed from every living space and all our planning requirements have been fully met – we look forward to realizing this project with you.” The client Friedemann after the design presentation (he has now lived in this house for 3 years)

We have numerous ideas for building a house with a flat roof and roof terrace on the top floor. Our architects will be happy to advise you.

Avant-garde villa on the waters of Lake Phoenix

The situation is very similar to the aforementioned project with our participant in the competition in the construction area near Dortmund, the “Phönixsee”. A very restrictive, but also very modern development plan set the direction. Many celebrities – for example a Bundesliga goalkeeper – have tried to create a monument to themselves there. Our client’s statement leads us to believe that we have certainly kept up.

“Our property is located in an exclusively modern B-plan area. There are already some top-class architect-designed houses there. We would be delighted if you could create a design for us that plays in the top league.”

And after handing over the final winning design: “Great, I think it’s the most unusual house in the entire residential area!”

The Tettenborn family have been living in their new house for almost 3 years now. The project is a fine example of how you can cleverly set yourself apart from the simple Cubus house with a few stylistic devices.

“Their design is excellent, they have managed to meet all our requirements. There are many beautiful, modern houses on Wannsee. Nevertheless, ours is very unusual. The dark façade with the brick slips makes it something special.”
Dr. L. shortly after moving in.

The floor plan of this house describes an L-shape, which offers numerous advantages and gives the building an exciting design from the ground up.

Timeless houses – individual floor plans

Away from the standard house types of well-known house suppliers, the completely individual planning of the floor plan and house creates a completely new quality. The layout and orientation of the rooms is 100% adapted to the plot and the needs of the clients. Visual axes and clever design will surprise you anew every day.

Timeless houses – the path to the building project

  • Your individual conditions of use are analyzed (requirements for the room program, usable space, occupant structure now and in the future, etc.): with meticulousness, diligence and with life and planning experience, a catalog of questions optimized over the years is worked through and optimized up to the starting position of the design work.
  • The parameters of the property are determined and evaluated (location, gradient, orientation of the sun path, development plan, surrounding buildings, vegetation, noise protection requirements, attractive or obscured lines of sight, views to be avoided, external structures, etc.).
  • A room program is created and optimized (arranged according to floors and areas of use)
  • Definition of initial visualization-relevant equipment parameters (facade color, terrace covering, with or without fireplace, etc.)

Choose from 2 variants:

  • Variant A
    1-3 studies + winning study as final design
  • Variant B
    1-3 Complete designs to choose from
  • For the first time, all bills of quantities are filled accurately and with the current market prices according to the situation after submission of the final draft (just as we have practiced for 15 years as general contractor-trained estimators).
  • The result is a precise cost breakdown – not a “cost estimate”.
  • Subsoil expertise
  • Surveying work
  • Preparation of the building application
  • Preparation of structural engineering certificates (statics, fire protection, sound insulation, thermal insulation, energy performance certificate, test statics – depending on the requirements of the client and the building authorities)
  • Creation of the architectural execution planning in 3D (BIM)
  • Preparation of the structural design
  • Preparation of the building services plans
  • Preparation of detailed plans (staircases, bathrooms, kitchens, dining rooms, wellness oases, children’s rooms, built-in niches, bedrooms, entrance areas, lighting design, etc.)

Modern villa by the lake with natural and swimming pond

It is one of our most beautiful houses, wonderfully surrounded by a Japanese garden and a Y-shaped natural and swimming pond, which the owner shares with his koi fish. A hovering garden house above the water level of this pond, the stepped expressive silhouette and the striking slanted columns make this ensemble something special among the many exclusively modern residential buildings on this site.

“Of the 120 or so new houses built here, hers is by far the most architecturally significant. Although they all have flat roofs and there is a restrictive modern building plan for all developers here, they have found a creative way to make our house stand out! Everyone who visits our development area notices our house positively.”

Mr. Kämers opinion. 6 years after moving in with H. Heinze – the construction area with its own harbor is now almost complete.

Detached house with modern architecture in Königstein

“We were immediately impressed by the shape of Mr. Meerheim’s design. The dominant wall slice over 2 floors is unique and very successful. The L-shaped arrangement of the room continuum (living – eating – cooking) on the first floor creates intimacy between the individual spheres of use while still maintaining an open space.” The Kostadinov family about their 1st house from us.

Especially on the first floor, the L-shaped floor plan makes perfect sense. The cooking / dining / living areas can be designed as an open room continuum. The corner arrangement also protects against unwanted views, e.g. from the living area to the washing-up area in the kitchen. The corner point is ideal for staging a 3-sided fireplace with a customized design.

“Even today – two years after moving in – we are still delighted with the very successful, calm and yet elegant architecture of our house.”
Prof. Dr. Daecke

Architect’s villa on a hillside above Wiesbaden

“….. It has become really beautiful! The view of the valley from all the important rooms is wonderful and the fireplace radiates in all directions – to the dining area, the kitchen counter and the sitting area. Everything just fits.
Quote from the Diemer family, 2 months after moving in

Building a house on a slope is a difficult undertaking. Our experienced architects have the expertise and numerous ideas for such sophisticated houses.

Modern pitched roof house in Bad Marienburg

“The development plan with the pitched roof requirement is the only shortcoming of our property. Can you even create something beautiful and modern?” At the end of the first meeting, the Dr. Lohmann family has been living in this house for 2 years.

A modern house with a pitched roof is always an exciting planning task. We have developed numerous stylistic devices to interpret this roof shape in a modern way. Let our ideas convince you.

After the presentation of the draft:
“… we find it particularly successful that the two large dormers on the corners, from certain angles – the entrance perspective in particular proves this – almost completely conceal the gable roof that we did not want (as required in the B-Plan), and the slope of the plot is also very well integrated into the design.”
Kneisel family: The house has been occupied by the family for 6 years.

Modern pitched roof house in Schwerdte

“Great class – we were afraid that we wouldn’t like a pointed roof, but they proved that it doesn’t have to be like that and we even have the feeling that it will be particularly beautiful and also quite unusual.” Mrs. and Mr. Veltum from Schwerdte after handing over the final design (the house has been inhabited for almost 2 years now).

Architect’s house Vienna on a slope

Mr. Baca 4 years after moving in to our photographer:
“I was very impressed that our house turned out exactly as Mr. Heinze designed it back then. The thing with the sun position visualization and the promised lack of shade on the ground floor terrace due to the neighbor’s giant trees also came true… It’s phenomenally beautiful architecture!”

On the occasion of the announcement of the results of our competition by the client:
“What convinced us most about your design and its implementation was that you combined the two different orientations of the window fronts to the south and the view of the valley for all the important living spaces so cleverly and appropriately with your fan-shaped arrangement of the garden-side façade fronts. Every room gets enough sun and gives us the view we wanted …..”
Mrs. Bettinger
(the family has lived in this house since 2017)

“A magnificent design – the unique shape is causing quite a stir and we are simply thrilled! The panoramic windows guarantee a wide view of the valley from all the living spaces and all the interiors they designed delight us every day – the fireplace and the master bathroom are particularly successful.” Mrs. Koch 1 year after moving in.

Architect’s house on a vineyard in Switzerland

This beautiful project with a special view into the distance across the valley – framed by high mountains – is one of the most beautiful projects we have been able to create. The vineyard location and the special design as a home to an excellent art collection are two other parameters that particularly inspired us. A pool on the terrace – captured and protected by the L-shaped floor plan – and the 2nd roof terrace on the floor above allow residents to enjoy the benefits of the special location to the full, even outdoors. Mr. P. Zünd about his house, about 12 months after moving in: “I can’t say it any other way: I am thrilled every day anew. As soon as I drive up to the house and from afar, I can see the shape of the building and enjoy it.”

International-style hillside house in Bad Soden

This very narrow and trapezoidal plot has not been sold for around 40 years because the existing building only had 150 square meters of living space and the architects approached were unable to plan a new building of the desired size of around 500 square meters of living and usable space due to the narrow and non-rectangular shape of the plot. H. Heinze succeeded and the “international style” look with similarities to the “Bauhaus style” took into account the client’s fundamental desire for “classic modernist” architecture. The sharp corners were “defused” by rounding them off and the client is still completely satisfied with this architecture today.
