Silent Rock, Bammental, Germany

Built in 2015, the two-story weekend house in Bammental appears as a dark monolith whose walls and roof were uniformly realized in lightweight concrete. Like an angular, hollowed-out stone, it blends unobtrusively into the surrounding landscape as a “silent rock” – no matter from which side you approach it – and creates a symbiosis of architecture and nature.
