Sculptural staircase feature at Ols House, Stuttgart, Germany


Berlin-based architectural practice, J. Mayer H. Architects, have designed the Ols House project. Completed in 2011, the home features a beautiful sculptural staircase. The property belongs to family in Stuttgart, Germany.

According to the architects: “The new house is on a plot of land near Stuttgart, on a hillside with a generous view of the valley. The owners wanted a new home that would bring this view to life even inside of the building. The house is in a residential area with conventional developments, most of which date from the 1960s.

“The new,  four person family home is divided into an elevated ground floor with entrance area, utility room and spa, and a second floor with an open, flowing floor plan containing the living, dining and kitchen areas. Full-height glazing provides a free view of the valley and terrace looking over the garden area.

“Upstairs are the sleeping areas, dressing rooms and bathrooms. The central design element is a sculptural staircase that connects all three levels.

“The property was built as a reinforced concrete construction. The facade consists of one heat-insulating compound system and an aluminum and glass facade. Slats and anti-glare sheeting provide integrated sun protection, protecting it against heat.

“All of the lightweight partition walls inside are made of drywall. The floor is a seamless layer of screed. The roof with the deep, recessed balcony was built with pre-weathered zinc plate cladding and is fitted with solar panels. Outdoor paved areas were realised as tartan surfaces.”

Adelto loves the interior design of this contemporary property. The property has a very clinical but cool feel to it. We do have a predilection for this sort of German design.
