The architecture of Sollner Terraces fits between old trees and in the middle of the historically grown surroundings of a residential area on the southern edge of Munich. The monolithic building has a saddle roof facing the street. At the rear, the residential building with its continuous grey plaster facade forms a building block, which with its stepping into the garden forms generous terraces and ends at the top with a modern penthouse.
The design translates the characteristics of the saddle roof house into a modern architectural language and combines them with a penthouse.
The main idea is to use the qualities of the terracing to create exceptional outdoor surfaces. At the same time, the terraces and balconies, together with large floor-to-ceiling windows, dynamise and open up the entire façade. Dark gold railings, dividing elements and window surrounds set accents contrasting with the dark basic tone.
The continuous grey plaster counteracts the process of mossing the white plaster façade. The construction of the roof as a largely homogeneous surface facilitates the cleaning of the leaves of the surrounding old tree population and thus reduces maintenance costs.
