Nestled in the hilly shores of Lake Constance, Überlingen Germany is a booming tourist destination. The city’s villages are filled with medieval structures and still hold market days that harken of times past. It’s the perfect spot for visitors searching for a peaceful escape, but it is not entirely in the past. The G12 house, designed by (se)arch Freie Architekten and photographed by Zooey Braun, embraces cutting-edge, modern architecture while offering must-see views of the tranquil countryside.

The premier feature of this house are the floor-to-ceiling windows that cover the entire front face. On the Ground Level, the entrance leads into the spacious kitchen. From the kitchen, there is access to a minimalist living area. Continuing along to the font of the home leads into a dining room and work space, where the wall of windows offers unprecedented ocean views and access to a open-air courtyard in the center of the home. Along one side, there is a library and sleeping quarters, complete with adjacent full bathroom. Beyond the bathroom, the open wooden staircase that also boasts floor-to-ceiling windows.

The stark interior design and blank white walls are continued on the upper, or Garden Level. Offering many of the same spaces as the first floor, there is an additional individual space, kitchen, and full bathroom. Those looking to beat the heat will enjoy the additional summerkitchen. However, the G12 house is not entirely without luxury. In keeping with the modern feel, there is a connected technical space. Plus, visitors who need to take a few moments to relax can also enjoy the private sauna and pool.

With its minimalist furniture and breathtaking views, the G12 House makes a bold statement that location trumps amenities while traveling. Where do you weigh in? Would you be willing to go basic in order to see the sunset here? Or, are you a little more high maintenance?

Charming Modern Home Extension Re-Shaping Socializing Opportunities

Extending a home to fit current needs is not to be taken easily. A modern home extension requires planning for future use and using what already exists to support that. An exemplary proof is Casa ATT by Dionne Arquitectos, a home in Puebla, Mexico, that was re-designed by the architects as a fuller, more nurturing collection of spaces. In their successful effort of renewing the outline of the house, architects integrated the new structure into the familiar floor plan by “generating clear transitional environments discovering visual axes and circulation leading to the new spaces.”

Plenty of socializing areas bring the family together: the new open social space, terrace and guest bedroom complete the necessary space and helps better organize the interiors. In addition, the terrace overlooking the garden connects the original volume with the new additions. In these photos captured by Patrick López Jaimes, the layout looks beautifully put together. From the front, the house looks private and once you step inside, details flood your design-hungry mind. According to the architects, “ATT House is a house in which a clear spatial harmony lives through environments that invite habitation.”

What do you think about this modern home extension? Can this home inspire you to extend your own piece of heaven? mo
