Description

Both architect visited the housing estate Weißenhof in Stuttgart in 1927 andbecame familiar with the architecture of Le Corbusier. Many of the main ideas were implemented for this villa, such as the pillars, supporting the balcony and to use the space under it for covered sitting in the garden. Parts of the first floor are put on pillars as well. All windows on the first floor are designed as ribbon windows. For a further connection between inside and outside and to be next to the garden, the second floor features a terrace facing south. A concret canopy with glass bricks on the right side serves as a protection against sun and rain.

History
