Rotes Haus, Bruchsal

Colour in play

In Bruchsal in Baden-Württemberg, a semi-detached house arose from the plans of the architects fmb architekten, which visually already sets itself apart from the neighbouring houses: the striking red plaster façade of the house within the densely built-up district catches the eye immediately. The architects decided on a monochrome colour design of roof, wall and other details in “ox-blood red”.

To be able to create as much living space as possible for a four-person family on the small plot, the normal roof overhangs were dispensed with. The organised ground plan and the room layout now provide an ideally exploited living space. There are two children’s rooms on the ground floor with a bathroom. On the first floor there are the open living and eating areas, with a large wooden terrace attached. In the first floor there is the bedroom and a bathroom with sauna. The loft also provides further space, being used as a play room. Light grey windows, solid oak parquet flooring and custom-made wooden fittings make the room appear visually larger.

This semi-detached house is equipped with the LS 990 design classic in white.
