Matthias Benz, the architect of this contemporary family home on a sloping hillside outside of Munich had to re-interpret the traditional architectural language of a German village — Benx worked under strict urban regulations allowing only pitched-roof buildings but managed to design something that would speak to the homeowner's desire for individuality and the village's building rules.

The building is finished in slate — a traditional material used in a modern way by Matthias Benz Architecture & Design. Be sure to check out the abundance of windows and the carport/garage that blends seamlessly with the rest of the structure!
