Maison L: A House as a Small Town by Christian Pottgiesser

Posted 1 year ago by

German born Architect Christian Pottgiesser creates so many wondrous architectural forms, that it’s almost no surprise this amazing home (or homes, rather) is so forward thinking. With the idea that this 18th century home extension should have ‘realm’ size buildings for each family member, that’s just what was created.

With the overall square footage of the French home being just under 10,000, the design had some technicalities and laws to abide by. The towers otherwise each have their own large bedroom with a dressing space, bathroom, and storage area. Multiple stories help as well, to resist taking over the huge lot filled with old trees. Each built tower is connected via a large, dark understructure that has skylights punched out to allow for natural light to flood in at all hours of the day.
