Townhouse O-10

“[My work] looks too dull. It doesn’t have enough bells and whistles,” suspects Sir David Alan Chipperfield. A reductive modernist, whose work of subtlety is defined more by a philosophy than stylistic preferences.

British architect, David Chipperfield insists on proper architecture. He preaches humanism in architecture with the abstract qualities of classical architecture. Well-known for his Neues Museum restoration in Berlin, he received knighthood in 2010.

The Townhouse O-10 in Berlin has a modest architecture  grounded on simple concepts; A clever use of a narrow lot, utilizing room height and natural light to emphasize the vertical aspect of an authoritarian structure.

The ever-precise, cool modernism. If Sir Chipperfield has his way, it can only get better from here.
