Das Glashaus in der Uckermark

With the Glashaus, Danish architect and designer Sigurd Larsen has created an extraordinary residence in the Uckermark region that places space, airiness and a sense of serenity under a transparent roof. An archetypal-looking building in the midst of forests and lakes that enchants with architectural artistry. Whether for small families, lovers or friends, whether as a short city escape, a long-awaited holiday or a flexible home office – the Glashaus is open in every respect.

The basic structure shows a simple floor plan, which includes two bedrooms, a bathroom and a large living space with kitchen on the ground floor. From all rooms, one looks through floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows into the garden and has access to a spacious covered terrace. The beds and shower are also arranged along the façade for both inside and outside use. When all the glass doors are open, the rooms seem to be niches that merge with nature. From here, as soon as you wake up, you can watch the hens strolling between the garden and the surrounding farmland. While the house opens up to the landscape, toward the street it hides behind a curved white stone wall that gives the building a graceful, almost enigmatic character. This makes entering the house a moment of surprise when the unexpected interior is revealed.

The interaction of wood, glass, polished screed and the unplastered sand-lime brick wall not only give the house a very special atmosphere, but also a pleasant living climate. Via a sculptural wooden staircase, which also serves as a sitting corner, you reach the imposing attic. A unique space for sunny and starry hours. While the gable roof is glazed to the west and offers a view of the valley, it is made of polycarbonate to the east, which not only provides privacy but also a striking play of light, shadow and colour. All in tune with the rhythm of the day and the seasons. And so each moment in the Glashaus in der Uckermark finds its own very special mood. A true highlight!

What to do

The best thing is to let yourself drift - in the meantime you can eat cake, swim, hike, cycle, do some gardening, unwind under the roof, read, play and do a thousand other things for which there is otherwise too little time.

Why we like this house

A thoroughly exceptional house that invites you to feel free at any level.

This house is great for

Families, couples or friends; a baby cot is looking forward the little guests.

Sustainability

The district heating is provided by the biogas plant in the village; no car needed: a bus runs from the railway station in Prenzlau and stops right to the front of the house.
