Villa am Lech: the somewhat different multi-generation house
Originally terraced houses were planned at this location. However, the exquisite site directly on the Lech with a view of the river and the town church of Landsberg inspired the B. family so much that they purchased the entire property. It was exactly here that their multigenerational house was to be built. An architect’s design already existed, envisaging a flat-roof building with a square ground plan in the classic style in the middle of the property. The clients decided on a second design submitted by Kehrbaum. In order to really do justice to the unique location on the Lech River, Kehrbaum Architekten suggested that all rooms should be oriented towards the water. This is because both the west and south sides are built relatively close to terraced houses in the traditional local style. Thanks to this trick, it was possible to upgrade the entire house with the view of the Lech.
The building now functions as a kind of functional wall between the northern and southern property boundary. Located very close to the access road, the ground floor of the building comprises the spacious entrance and the open rooms spreading out from it. Beyond, the main building structure rises up to the height of the five terraced houses that were planned here before. The Bel Etage is connected to the basement and the mezzanine by an open staircase.

The living areas stretch along the long, bright hallway on the mezzanine floor, leading to a terrace, the pool area and the barbecue area on the same level.
The building sculpture consists of coloured exposed concrete. With sand concrete and pebbles from the Lech river, a sensory and optical experience was achieved similar to natural stone. All edges were hammered by hand and missing parts were elaborately completed by a church painter. As a result, the building now looks as if it had been cut from a block of natural stone. Inside, too, the house boasts the finest materials, from steamed oak to sanded varnish. The push & open mechanism on built-in cupboards and room doors underlines the high-quality style. A large, open fireplace characterises the dining area, clad with elegant natural stone tiles, matching the main structure.
The living area on two split levels, children’s apartments, a spacious parents’ area, fitness and sauna as well as a separate, elegant grandmother’s apartment complete the diverse range of rooms, complemented by an equally impressive open-air concept. All in all, this is a Landsberg villa second to none.
