E20 House

This beautiful rough concrete house located in the small town of Pliezhausen in the Baden-Württemberg region, Germany, has been designed by Steimle Architekten, a talented architectural firm from Stuttgart.

Set in a sloping plain, the E20 House allows its concrete exterior to show through without overwhelming the minimal interior. The house is hexagonal, allowing for a room layout that lends itself to eye-catching reveals. Warm wood floors and cabinets pair with white walls and exposed grey concrete to give the interior a cozy yet distinctly modern feel, while abundant windows let in plenty of natural light while providing views to the outdoors.

I particularly love the contrast between the brutalist exterior and the warm wooden interior of this project. Simple yet characterised by an iconic shape, E20 House takes a sculptural sense if compared to its ordinary neighbourhood.
