Architects: Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret

Bruckmannweg 2, Stuttgart

The house of Corbusier and Jeanneret is part of the Weissenhof estate, which was built in 1927 under the direction of Mies van der Rohe and comprised a total of 21 houses with 63 apart­ments. By means of multi-storey apartment buildings, terraced, semi-detached and single-family houses, the then current state of the art in floor plan and building ratio­na­li­sation was presented. The only form element binding for all buildings was the flat roof.

The single-family house by Corbusier shows the possi­bi­lities of free floor plan and facade design over a reinforced concrete skeleton, supple­mented by a roof garden and a two-storey living space.
