A Berlin family planned a weekend and holiday home on a lakeside property on the south side of Lake Grimnitz. The house could not be expensive, and the roof shape and cubature of the dilapidated barn that stood there before had to be adopted—this was the condition of the building permit. These were the parameters for the most publicised house by Modersohn & Freiesleben, whose main theme is the view of the lake.

Four concrete strips allow a square wooden platform to float over the sloping property. An eaves height wall of wooden planks surrounds the square all around, sliding doors form entrances on the sides. On the street façade, the wooden wall rises to a triangular gable. This gable belongs to the house, which rises under a saddle roof from the street side almost to the lakeside. A purlin construction supported on the outside by pillars and in the middle by space-defining laminated wooden beams. Because the neighbours’ views are shielded—thanks to the wooden fence—translucent polycarbonate multi-skin sheets suffice for the side walls, letting light into the large space. The same material fills the gable to the lake, whilst the front side is glazed to the eaves. Once the wooden fence is opened over the entire width of the house, the view can focus on the lake; then it seems that this is the only house on the lake.
