Architect: Le Corbu­sier (†), Paris

The house's exte­rior is a white-plaster cubic body which, supported by light pillars, seems to hang over the ground floor; above the pillars, the cuboid's free-form facade is inter­rupted by horizontal strip win­dows. The inte­rior awaits visi­tors with 'light, air, and colour' in an open floor plan with well thought out built-in furniture. The flat roof sur­prises with a garden offe­ring a fan­tastic pan­or­amic view of the city. It was with this sig­nalling and radi­cally modern duplex at the Weis­senhof hou­sing deve­lop­ment in Stuttgart in 1927 the world-famous architect Le Corbu­sier imple­mented his idea of new residen­tial hou­sing. Opened in 2006, the museum and informa­tion centre pres­ents itself as an acces­sible exhibit of the modern spirit. More than 80 years after its comple­tion, this bright white house still looks incredibly modern.
