This is our competition entry for a so called „Haus des Gastes“ on the beautiful German island of Amrum. In 2020 the city of Nebel initiated a competition to seek for proposals of a „guest house“ that would serve tourists and locals alike. The house was meant to contain a café, an auditorium, a small kindergarten as well as rooms for the local branch of Germany’s Life Saving Association (DLRG).
It is an exercise on the application of „context as device“ as design principle. The building’s design is a blend of regional formal patterns and shall be both: decidedly contextual as well as clearly contemporary.
