Das schwarze Haus: Uckermark at its best

Schwarze Haus
View Gallery

Only an hour drive from Berlin, the untouched and peaceful landscape of Uckermark is almost shocking. The hills are covered in deep green grass and bright yellow rapeseed fields, lakes appear out of nowhere sparkling in the sunlight and small villages are filled with historic farmhouses, often renovated and used as weekend homes by city dwellers. It is exactly because of this reason that Thomas Kröger Architects decided to keep the design of Das Schwarze Haus as restrained as possible.

The interior’s cast flooring and stained spruce wood are purposefully dark, while one side of the modern home—inspired by the region’s historic barns and made of local larch wood—is almost entirely composed of glass.


These elements allow the full force of the natural view to become a constant companion. Whether one is sitting in the sunken living room reading a book, relaxing in the bathtub, or preparing dinner, every pause and glance is directed into the changing colours of the horizon, creating a distinct sense of inner peace and stillness from the surrounding nature.
