The Weissenhof Estate was built in 1927 as part of the building exhibition „Die Wohnung“, organized by the Deutscher Werkbund and financed by the city of Stuttgart.

During the exhibition, the 33 realized houses could be viewed from the outside and inside. Afterwards, they were rented out by the city.

Seventeen inter­na­tional archi­tects under the artistic direction of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, presented their innovative designs for modern, healthy, affordable and functional living.

In addition to the model houses in the Weissenhof Estate, there were three other exhibi­tions on modern building worldwide, interior design and new building materials and constructions.

Within just four months, 500,000 visitors came to see the exhibition, which had a worldwide resonance.

The Weissenhof Estate showed the then current develo­pment of archi­tecture and housing.

A formal coherence was achieved through the avant-garde archi­tec­tural views of the contri­buting archi­tects and the speci­fi­cation of flat roofs.

Jacobus Johannes Pieter Oud’s group of terraced houses from 1927 built in cast concrete is his only realised project outside the Netherlands.

Entrances lead from both long sides into each house with 73 square metres of living space, whereby the corridor areas have been extremely minimised.

On the upper floor there is a walk-in closet, bathroom, WC and three bedrooms.

In order to be able to build quickly, the houses were constructed of light­weight concrete, which was cast on site.
