The history of a house begins with the place where it is built. Whether the property is located in the city center, on the outskirts, on the water or in the countryside makes a decisive contribution to the design of the building. A dream house initially arises as a vision in the mind of the client and develops in cooperation with the architect into a concrete and individual plan. It is a demanding task to find a balance between the wishes and ideas of the future residents and the orientation of the property in the landscape while taking into account local building regulations. The privacy of the client is one of the main issues when integrating the building into the structural environment and when planning the overall layout. Characterized by flowing transitions between architecture and nature and the strong relationship between inside and outside, each of the DREAM HOUSES presented here has its own character. Innovative concepts for the interior design ensure the harmonious whole of every project in conjunction with lighting and landscaping. The interplay of architecture, design and joie de vivre make living in a DREAM HOUSE a wonderful experience. But it is the love that the residents have for each other that makes a house a home.
