FÖHR is a project completed by Karin Matz and Francesco di Gregorio, and it is located in Alkersum, on the island of Föhr, in Germany. The traditional exterior belies a quirky interior, with stair hand-railing made out of string, tiled walls, and hidden windows that make this home fun and interesting to explore. Houses were always in brick with thatched roofs. The rooms were small, dark and all the same size. The space as been re-opened by taking down all dividing walls except for the ones surrounding the bathroom. A new volume is added which becomes the central wall going through and unifying the space. It is covered in ceramic tile with a simple pattern given by the blue cement holding them. Light is brought through the reflective ceramics and the translucent doors. Threads frame the staircase creating a transparent threshold. The bedrooms are dark bed-boxes, private like nests.
