Thank you Gloria, for your beautiful play, from Johannes, Regina and the seven Maine Coons, living in that house!
Enjoy Architecture , Nature, Music....! This building is a melodious Shell-House, designed by Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Architect, Johannes S. Fritz with a "widespanning" overall planning concept: Passive Solar House, Timber Shell Construction, Organic Forms, Music-Architecture, Harmonical Proportions, Natural Constructions, Building with Nature, Handicraft Details.
"Nature is swinging - earth and moon, this house is swinging in the same tune". According to this motto, the surrounding mountain-landscape as well as the musicality of the inhabitants should be represented in the architecture of this house. The architect and owner is teaching at the "University of Applied Siciences Rhein-Main" in Wiesbaden, his wife is a teacher of art, mathematics and music. Both are hobby-musicians, dreaming of a "Swinging Home" for a "Swinging Lifestyle", with optimal contact to the nature around. The extroverted shell-shape takes account to the phantastic panorama-view.
Building Concept: The house consists of a central body with two wings. The "body" has an approximately elliptical shape, like a living cell. It is the massive "core" of the building, with access, supply and energy-store. It contains on the ground floor level foyer/wintergarden, bathroom, on the upper level another bathroom, the kitchen and ,to the south-side, the dining-place with chimney-fire and balcony. For dining you are sitting like in a "cockpit" with a magnificient panorama-view over town and landscape.
The two free-spanning building-wings are covering areas for living, working and making music. They are high-vaulted, light spaces with an amazing view and an excellent accoustic as well. Rooms, where also the soul can "breath". On the galeries, you find cave-like vaulted, low areas, "nids" for resting and dreaming, while having a "bird-eye-view" to the outside. On the ground-floor-level are rooms for office-work and sleeping, on lower levels diverse secondary rooms. A water-basin on the south-side filled with filtered rainwater serves as a swimming-pool.
