Shelves are ideal for rearranging things and ensuring a tidy atmosphere. They provide extra storage and are available in multiple designs to suit different tastes. This particularly applies to DIY shelves that can be cut and designed into any desired or suitable shapes and sizes. Attaching shelves to the wall makes better use of the living space and makes rooms feel particularly airy and generous.

The travertine slabs used to cover each of the five facade and roof surfaces are almost all of differing sizes that had to be correctly cut, positioned and attached. Substructure systems by BWM Fassadensysteme GmbH were used for the secure installation of the natural stone slabs. The firm is part of the fischer Group of Companies.
