Schutz, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany

The view of the valley with the little Kyll is stunning. The two holiday homes Vulkaneifelhaus and Kleines Vulkaneifelhaus are located in the middle of nature. The guests can look forward to peace and quiet without the background noise level known from cities. In return you get loud bird concerts, especially from March to June, and you can watch foxes and deer. The surrounding streets have little traffic.

Inside the two holiday homes, modern comfort and a feeling of generosity await the guests: a sophisticated, sustainable architecture that was implemented with natural materials such as wood, natural stone and linoleum. The houses are bright, modern, cozy and at the same time reduced to the essentials.

The host Hermann Fahlenbrach was looking for a piece of land and immediately fell in love with this wonderful 10,000 m 2 spot. The Vulkaneifelhaus was first completed in 2015, followed by the small Vulkaneifelhaus in 2019. Hermann would like to enable gentle tourism “right on the doorstep” so that city dwellers can experience a pleasant holiday in nature in less than two hours' drive.

ArchitectureThe aim was to use as little space as possible for the houses, which is why two smaller houses were built. The wood construction consists of recyclable building material and was implemented with local suppliers and preferably regional materials. The Vulkaneifelhaus is located on a south-facing slope and is built as a spatial modulation, which is characterized by narrowing and widening, and thus includes intimate and opening rooms. All areas are unique in their atmosphere and their views of the surrounding nature through large windows. The host describes the small Vulkaneifelhaus as a hiding place that offers a retreat from the outside world and at the same time enables a wonderful view of the valley. The house has a polygonal floor area and is spanned by a gable roof - depending on whether you are on the slope or the valley side, the building looks different in size.

EnvironmentThe holiday homes are emission-free because they are powered by geothermal energy and 100% green electricity. The heating is done by underfloor heating with a brine heat pump and there is an additional wood stove in the living-dining room. Meadow and forest are natural. The orchard was created exclusively with old, historical varieties of the region and thus represents an important contribution to safeguarding biodiversity.

Die Züricher Architekten Fiederling Habersang haben ein Haus aus schwarzen Bohlen auf eine Obstwiese über den Fluss Kleine Kyll gesetzt. 55 Quadratmeter, Kamin an, unter der Milchstraße wandern im Nationalpark, seit 2019 "International Dark Sky Park", oder in den Maaren, Vulkanseen, baden. Wer unter sich bleiben will: das große Haus dazubuchen - für Freunde, Familie.
