In the historic center of Regensburg, in Bavaria (Germany), the project foresees the demolition of a building which is part of a continuous "quint" and its reconstruction with new construction criteria and energy standards.

The new building is a private home with swimming pool and a sport training area inside.

Answering to requirements of the City to maintain an effect of seriality in the façade openings the project has a very neutral and naked facade but with windows dimension as wider as possible.

Ultra-ligth crystal railings without handrail, together with invisible windows frame hidden behind the wall, and mirrored glass reflecting the buildings on the other side of the road, add an effect of abstraction and dematerialization.

So that the building sits between the adjacent buildings without altering or contradicting the continuity of the "quint", but at the same time it reveals its contemporary.

The internal spaces have been organized in three parallel zones with the first one on the left thougth like a service tower containing all the wet areas of the house and a swimming-pool on the top level. The central zone is void containing an open stairway and a glass elevator. And the third one contains all the living spaces, without any structure between the two facades.

One empty space from ground level to the roof level is thought like a unique "public living space" with the living-dining room downstairs and the fitness area upstairs, containing in between the suspended volume of the private spaces of the rooms.
