'House M' by Philipp Architekten is a modern house that's tucked away at the foot of the Swabian Alb highlands in Southern Germany. It's a wonderful surprise when it fully emerges into view, boasting a huge white canvas with large glossy windows boarding the front, side and back walls.

The combination of white and glass allows an exceptional use of lighting with an extremely long and narrow plot. The house's intense proportions posed an interesting challenge to the architecture company, yet managed to find a clever solution to the problem. It revolves around the family's home floor plan arrangement based on three 'lines:' a tree line, a water line and an art line.

The house proves that it's possible to make a living in any space.
