Jan Rösler Architekten
Jan Rösler set up his atelier in 2010. Based in Berlin, the architect admits his main inspiration is the ’desire for perfection’. A trained cabinetmaker and carpenter, Rösler also runs a workshop to handle the bespoke elements of his designs. The House Stein project showcases his skills, thanks to a trusting client and the fact that 80 per cent of the project was created and built by this in-house team. A radical conversion of an existing building in Sachsen Anhalt, the house is a combination of loving restoration and contemporary elements, with hand-crafted details at every turn, from the new window frames to the minimal bathroom. Rösler is happy to stay small - ’most mega projects have a lack of aesthetics and personal relationship’, he says - but would like to broaden his horizons and concentrate his eye for quality on a modest museum project.
