Woloszczuk House is a project designed by Ralf Pflugfelder. This at the same time traditional and modern house situated close to the Richmond Park won the Build It Award 2019 for his successful combination of conventional building language of the surrounding houses with a highly efficient ecologic design concept. He reached to build an innovative and spacious home for a family, which offers from different angles of vision completely different appearance.


This comes from the award winning construction concept developed by Pflugfelder: The challenge was to create an extremely spacious place of nearly 8000 square feet for five persons on a relative small plot of land, due to London’s high ground prices. This was fulfilled by a vertical based design over four floors which opens nearly endless to the surrounding garden area and the interior square. Various split-levels give form to the enormous open space that was be constructed as horizontal platforms, based on big columns in the ground floor.

Playing with vertical and horizontal lines, realized in wooden timber frame construction, surrounding the interior square, which extends over four floors, result these surprising perspectives which change from open to closed continuously depending observer’s standpoint. The architect designed a luxurious and energy-efficient place that fits in perfect way in the former styles of the neighbourhood.
Following nature’s example, Baufritz has been planning and constructing ecologically sustainable buildings for over 120 years. High-quality, pollutant-tested building and insulation materials are used to create individual architect’s houses that protect people and the environment.
