Beauty is everywhere
The architect designed the house to reflect the contours of the land and incorporated the beauty of the water situated on the estate. “The property centers on a quiet pond and the pond is echoed by three new man-made “ponds” — two for reflection and one for swimming — all surrounded by the sheltering forms of the house.”
Haase Haus is a modern, private, architectural masterpiece.
The floors are rose limestone and cherry wood, and the ceilings and beams and wood details are Finland birch. The windows — like the roof — are copper.
The design is both complex and simple, in different ways. It is complex in the way the architecture expresses the structures of the spaces and the way it combines materials. It is simple in the way the materials are used – exactly as their properties determine. Stone as stone; copper as copper; wood as wood. Like a human body, a building lives because of the integrity of the components that work together in harmony and in strict conformance with their properties.
This work of organic architecture exhibits the same quality of integrity — the integration and harmony of the components that arise from the qualities and properties of the materials used.
