On two full storeys, our detached houses with hipped or tent roofs offer plenty of space for your living ideas. With so many possibilities, it's not easy to find the right floor plan.
To give you some inspiration for your own urban villa, our Hanse Haus architects have designed a number of villa floor plans suitable for everyday use with different living spaces that can be implemented particularly well as a prefabricated house with a hipped roof or tent roof.
You find our prefabricated villas particularly beautiful and elegant, but would like more individuality for your dream home?
No problem at Hanse Haus. No matter whether you have a Mediterranean Tuscany house with southern flair in mind or a modern city villa with clean lines: Our trained architects will discuss your wishes and ideas with you. This is how the ideal design for your personally designed tent roof or hipped roof house is created.
The two roof forms are very similar in terms of appearance and construction: tent roofs and hipped roofs consist of four sloping roof surfaces and have no gables.
- In the detached house with a hipped roof, these roof surfaces meet at the ridge, creating a ridge line. The two surfaces on the gable sides that replace the actual gable are called hips.
- In the detached house with a tent roof, the triangular roof surfaces taper towards the top like a pavilion. The highest point of the roof is called the ridge point.
With such similar roof shapes, the decision is often not easy. However, one important point should be taken into account:
A detached house with a tent roof is usually planned on square or at least approximately square ground plans. If a tent roof is to be constructed on a rectangular building, two opposite roof surfaces must have a different pitch than the other two.
In order to create the optimal square floor plan for the tent roof, it may be possible to plan less freely. A detached house with a hipped roof allows more flexibility here.
Detached houses with a tent roof or hipped roof not only have a convincing individual look, but also offer a lot of space: there are no roof slopes on the upper floor, so the living space can be fully utilised.
In regions where it rains or snows a lot, or if the house is detached and exposed to the weather, a hip roof or tent roof offers decisive advantages. The construction is particularly stable and the slope of the four roof surfaces allows precipitation to drain off very well. The outer façade is well protected on all sides by the roof.
The hip roof and the tent roof belong to the more expensive roof forms. The higher costs result from the complex construction, the larger roof area and the higher material and time expenditure.
As a rule, these two roof forms are thus more expensive than a detached house with a pitched roof, which with its relatively simple construction is one of the cheaper roof forms. Flat roofs and pent roofs are usually even cheaper.
Carolin Muth is particularly enthusiastic about the versatility of our Villa house series.
„An urban villa with a hipped or tent roof offers a lot of room for ideas. There are numerous possibilities to design the house individually, both inside and out, and to implement your own style.“
