Plywood House
Rappenbodenweg 6, Bottmingen, 1985
herzog de meuron, Basel

As an addition to a house on a corner site, the new volume has a visible entrance from the street in order to provide public access to the private marionettes theatre. Plywood on the inside is also used to form the shutters. Accordingly, the new building is thought of as a lightweight box, like a musical instrument, sitting on projecting sleepers and consisting of plywood sheets in a balloon-frame construction that recalls the traditional craftsmanship of Japan.
