'House FMB' is a home with a difficult task. Its occupants, the clients behind the design from Fuchs Wacker Architekten, hoped for the house to be able to comfortably keep children around as their young family grew, and yet they didn't want to abandon the (attractive but severe) tenets of contemporary home design. The architects managed to deliver by separating forms between interior and exterior.
The outside of House FMB looks like a standard contemporary home, with several large, white, rectangular panels that cover the facade. Though boxy on the outside, the shapes on the inside are far more amenable to everyday life. The most notable interior features are the two staircases in the home: smooth, white, spiraling fixtures that drop directly out of the ceiling. That gentle curve is playful, which is an ideal quality for children.
