Below the Vierseithof on Lake Vielitz was a duck coop, close to the water’s edge and with the most beautiful view of the lake. It became an LPG holiday home that fell into ruin — down to the masonry structure — after the end of the GDR: a 27-metre-long, 6-metre-deep structure with pitched roof, which crouched on the hillside.

Through the conversion, a bungalow emerged, which still hugs the hillside but faces the lake in a single, large window frontage. Only the foundation slab and the back and side walls of the duck coop holiday home were preserved. The foundation slab was extended to a depth of nine metres for a terrace, two wooden columns placed in the wall-U, on which a huge wooden support rests, mirrored in a band of windows in the back wall of the bungalow. Four further supports stand on the terrace and carry the second purlin; as with the duck coop, a pent roof closes off the structure.

Wood, plaster, glass, and concrete suffice as materials. Only two indispensable chambers for bathroom and storage space are symmetrically set as blocks in the large interior space. Nothing superfluous distracts from the orientation to the lake.
