“In a time of excess we have built a house that makes the essentials tangible,” says the client. “It should not be big and important, but small and correct.”
House Rheder by Falkenberg Innenarchitektur has become a place of retreat, a building that deliberately withdraws and allows the surrounding landscape to present itself to the full. Over the softly rushing waters of the stream, with a wide view into the green East-Westphalian landscape, the stress and hustle and bustle of everyday life is quickly forgotten.
The new, great task of our time is to leave the unimportant and to give more space to the essential. To feel connected with nature is an integral and essential part of our lives. It gives us peace and structure, space for thought and grounding in the hectic of our age.
The architecture of House Rheder reflects man’s rediscovered desire for naturalness, simplicity and clarity. The aim of the design is the sensual perceptibility of the various lighting moods and the experience of air, fire, water and earth.
