Material Fassade
Constructed within the court of an existing apartment building in Charlottenburg, the Urban Villa is a home hidden within the heart of the city.
The structure’s facade is painted light grey, and holds windows flush to the wall.
Inside, the floor plan is open, and leaves no seperation between living room  and kitchen. The living room itself is  set deeper into the ground, nesting the residents at home. The ceiling’s wooden beams reinforce this home-like quality, and maintain the  space’s structure. Finally, the  window sill is a 40cm-high space, carving out a place for rest.
