Architect house Cologne

In the middle of an urban setting, just a few hundred metres away from the Cologne cathedral, architect Martin Wendling has created a little jewel of relaxed isolation for himself and his family. The former workers’ accommodation unit from the 60’s has been upgraded to a stylish single-family home with a brick façade. The new residential property fits in beautifully with its historic surroundings. The architect also attaches great importance to the integration of security technology from ABUS. An alarm system, video surveillance cameras and an access control system were discretely installed with the aid of comprehensive experience, flair and an understanding of sophisticated design.
