Rental of the week: Black House in Germany

Architect Thomas Kröger was tasked with designing a ‘glass box in the meadows’ by the owners of Black House in Uckermark.

The area – known as the ‘Tuscany of the north’ – is packed with hills, lakes and woodland and this property sits on the edge of Prenzlauer Forest, with views of the surrounding hills.

Echoing the silhouette of a barn, Black House makes the most of its natural vistas, with floor-to-ceiling windows across two-thirds of its ground floor, which holds an open-plan living room and kitchen.

The property takes its name from colour palette – a moody contrast to the surrounding greenery. Dark wood finishes combine with concrete floors and black units in the kitchen.

Meanwhile, colour is injected into the 4-bedroom home via the furniture, such as the purple sofa in front of the large wood-burning stove in the living room.

Black House – sleeping up to eight people – is available to rent via Boutique Homes.
