House W is a new family home with outhouse designed by Peter Ruge Architekten in 2014, covers an area of 86,5 sqm with terrace of 47,0 sqm and is located in County Oberhavel, Brandenburg, Germany.
House W is a detached dacha for a German-Russian family of musicians. Located 75 km north of Berlin in the beautiful countryside of Brandenburg, it is surrounded by lakes and forests. On a large 6,500 m2 site, a one storey wooden cabin has been constructed with a spacious living, dining and kitchen area.
Connected to the imposing outside landscape, large window areas open the building up to the wooden porch and the natural garden. The low cost, wooden construction and the silver-turning larch cladding have been chosen to emphasize renewable primary products and to mingle with natural surroundings.
