055_Kleine Bremer Höhe

Concept & Idea

The listed ensemble "Kleine Bremer Höhe" is to be renovated and, in this context, the attic storeys expanded or extended. In close coordination with the Office for the Conservation a sensitive monument-friendly solution was developed for the four houses of the ensemble. Within the top floors there are six spacious and modern apartments added. Partially hidden behind the historic façade roof terraces allow for an outside space as well as good ventilation and sunlight to the living spaces. In house 01 the roof geometry is slightly changed. Based the historic height the current non-historic roof is demolished and the a new roof with a slightly higher ridge is installed to generate more spacious living spaces inside. The building roof of House 02, however, is not changed. Here, taking into account the historical roof construction, a new apartment is carefully fitted. For house 03 and house 04, the contaminated roof is removed and historic monument sensible staggered floor installed. The new staggered roof is carefully designed so that it will not be visible to pedestrians at the courtyard and the streets. The minimalist curtain-wall façade of the penthouse is hidden behind the historic façade parapet.
