The northeastern village of Gelting along the Baltic Sea is home to a protected and wild coastal landscapes and this home inhabits the scenery with a stark modernist beauty.
One of three designed by Hamburg based architect Sonke Martensen, the home is in the final conceptual stage of development and can be customized to adapt to the buyers specifications.
Constructed of raw and polished concrete, pale wood and oversized panels of glass, the staggered, two story silhouette is composed of crisp, clean lines and monolithic proportions.
The 105sm layout is not yet fixed and allows for variable customization. Current plans include two bedrooms and two full bathrooms with three possible kitchen layouts and the rest to be defined and adjusted to the client’s wishes.
The rooms are flooded with natural light and offer open plan spaciousness with high ceilings and large airy rooms and a raw, minimalist feel.
Floor to ceiling windows focus outward onto the shoreline and the Geltinger Birk nature reserve, one of the largest in Schleswig-Holstein, with almost two thousand aces of wild, windswept shoreline and dunes, salt marshes and lagoons.
