Project Description from the Architects, SoHo Architektur:
Located in the southern parts of the historic center of Memmingen, Soho Architects built a townhouse with two housing units. Designed as a “three-window house,” its appearance towards the street space represents the typical image of a townhouse.
The contour of the mansard roof, the structural level and the footprint of the former building were adopted and adapted to today´s requirements. A punctuated facade including a back-fill of the gable per floor, interprets in a pure way historical themes of decoration and form design.
Each unit has its own access from the Kempter Street and each one leads through four stories from the ground floor to the attic story.
The arrangement of dogleg stairs in the center of the building enables via an access zone to tie the two units both to the public Kempter Street and to the private yard in the west. From the second floor on, the rooms additionally orientate themselves towards north side and respectively south side.
Thus, a multifaceted and flexibly usable living environment with garden, balcony and roof terrace is generated which offers many amenities of living in the countryside but in the middle of the city.
