This passively heatable and partly pre-fabricated single family home in Tübingen/Germany was recently completed by the newly founded German practice architekten martenson und nagel theissen. The small lot size, the stated distance to the neighbour houses and the land needed for housing six people led to a tower-like building. In its compact cubature and the fully formulated housetop ‘JustK’ fits into the traditional surrounding of gray tufa buildings from the 1920s, interpreted contemporary.
