One look at this house would make you wonder what makes it so amazing but when you try to examine the structure, you will surely be impressed! There are some houses that can immediately impress you with just one glance but this house would make you stare at it longer. You will also be curios with its design and its rooftop garden that is certainly different with other rooftop gardens you have seen before. This modern bungalow is named House S as owned by Wilfried Hilger.The house is designed in a manner that it could benefit the entire household. The house has three boxes on top of a cantilevered flat roof where you can also find the rooftop garden. This is the asset of Hilger’s home. The three single boxes on top of the roof are valuable aspects of the entire building. One box contains the master bedroom, dressing room and bathroom. Another box is a personal living room while the other box is a home office. It was intelligently designed including the interiors. The rooftop garden was designed with various zones. In the north, you can find a stone paved courtyard with pine tree. In the south-west is a small meadow with an apple tree while in the east is a magnolia. It is also simply designed but it gives a very sophisticated look. The entire house uses sleek lines and white colors for a modern minimalistic touch. Even the interiors also use minimal furniture and white colors. Let us take a tour on House S and discover its very unique creation.

The glass corridor of the three boxes makes the house refreshing and elegant. The house is actually a renovation of an existing bungalow and the result turned out really well. Completed in 2011, the house stands proud not just because of its beautiful exterior but also due to its unique rooftop garden. The whole uses triple glazed windows and highly effective insulation to optimize the entire structure. The way we see it,the designer, Roger Christ was indeed successful in this project. Like many homes, House S managed to combine modern design with nature simply by having a rooftop garden. Although the rooftop garden doesn’t have an elaborate and sophisticated landscape workmanship, it still made the house impressive and distinct. Having a rooftop garden is just one way of adding a unique touch to your own homes. And this what makes House S fascinating.
