Joost house near Hamburg, Germany

Architect Carsten Joost has created a home for his family near Hamburg, Germany in a modern cubic design with minimalist aesthetics, thus bringing his unique interpretation of loft style out into the countryside. He deliberately choose raw, natural materials, such as irregularly structured exposed concrete and traditional clinker brickwork, which create a connection to the rural surroundings. Thanks to the expansive windows, the family of five experiences the seasons and the times of day up close and personal while going about their daily lives. Upstairs, the rooms are more intimate, providing space for quiet retreat.


Minimalist design that perfectly unites function and form

For the furniture, Joost chose Thonet’s iconic tubular-steel cantilever chairs. Six S 64 models by Marcel Breuer surround the dining table in the stained black beech version with natural canework. Minimalist versions of the S 43 by Mart Stam with stained black wood elements have also been placed in various locations throughout the house. Carsten Joost and his wife were both drawn to the chairs right from the start, thanks to their minimalist design that perfectly unites function and form. “The chairs fit subtly into the overall house concept without distracting from it. The chrome-coloured tubular steel, for example, glistens in the sunlight creating reflections of light that we deliberately incorporated into the design,” says Carsten Joost. Ultimately, the chairs have also proved their worth through their unparalleled comfort, even after years of use. “The chairs are unbelievably comfortable. And, in the end, that is what really matters when it comes to seating.”
