Yin Yang in Panketal
The single-family house was built in the 1930s in solid construction and provided with insulating plaster and plastic cladding in fake brick-look in the 2010s. The design provides for the doubling of the volume in continuation of the existing building shape.
In terms of material and expression, the extension in a light wood construction with translucent and transparent infills in polycarbonate and glass contrasts the dark and closed façade of the existing building. Also, the open interior of the extension with a gallery forms a spatial antithesis to the subdivision into a sequence of tiny rooms of the 1930ies part of the building.
