Berlin Home by Volker Wiese


Architect and builder Volker Wiese emulated the Bauhaus style when created his dream residence in Berlin. Wiese settled on a site for his new project in the fashionable but urban area of Berlin-Grunewald where he demolished a run-down post war building.

To secure privacy synthetic HI-MACS cladding is arranged symmetrically to form an intimate and sheltered courtyard on the inside, with exciting planes and offset facades mixed with large windows.

Mindful of the connection between nature, sustainability and living was pivotal to the design. The architectural company Kaden Klingbeil executed the solid wood frame and ceilings. Façade panels were mounted on aluminum structures, and he opted for a ventilated rain screen allowing the structures to seem less obvious.

Wiese pioneered the use of Hi-MAC panels in the property to produce not only an aesthetically appealing outcome but a sustainable, weatherproof and private home.
