Pure, puristic modernism

Description

Located directly on the Baltic Sea, on the Kiel Fjord, the architect built his own home. He knew how to make the most of the beautiful location by orientating the entire living area towards the water facing west. Not much was important to him, as the house only has one floor. The rounded shapes, the elongated terrace in front of the living room, the implied pillars and the flagpole are basic elements of classic modernism. The white colour makes the architecture appear even lighter.The interior of most of the rooms was based on the principle of minimum dwelling. At the rear is the small bedroom, the functional kitchen with a small dining table and a narrow bathroom.

History

A house that the architect Rudolf Schroeder built for himself and his wife in 1931. Today, the house shines in almost its former splendour. The relatives renovated the house in 2005 and have lived in it themselves ever since. They built a wall and a dam to protect it from the high tides of the Baltic Sea.
