Part of the 1957 building exhibition in Berlin’s Tiergarten park, this Modernist glass atrium house was designed by Eduard Ludwig, an architect who studied briefly at the Bauhaus, and whose passion lay in the design of bungalow-style houses. He studied under Mies van der Rohe and the influence of modernist masterpiece the Barcelona Pavillion is evident here.
The simple lineality of the building is echoed internally with the floating linear kitchen cabinets, built-in, low-level storage lining the living area, and bathroom vanity in palest stone suspended against a full wall of mirror. Textured surfaces abound and are enhanced with splashes of intense colour in the palette of dark orange, black and off-white. Simple, classic furniture pieces like the shaker style chair (Hay do a simlar one, here) and brass domed kitchen pendant hold their own and yet perfectly compliment the space.

That fireplace is wonderful! I am in love with this style.
the designers definitely took liberties using that fireplace, which would not have been part of the original design… but i love it too! 🙂
Loved every corner of this house! I enjoyed the minimalism of the kitchen too. Thanks for sharing it.
such a pleasure!
Oh .. it has to be the log burner for me too .
Then again I love that Red Tap 🙂
I could so see myself sitting in that chair, all toasty, flicking nonchalantly through that pile of books…

Add your thoughts here… (optional)
The more you look at the pictures, the better you appreciate all details and the entire style. My very first impression was “too retro” for me but when scrolling down, it gets better and better and know I would live in this place:-)
I love an interior that has to be discovered, that gets better and better the more one looks… great to have your comments! 🙂
The fireplace in this home is really fabulous! Perfect combo with the dark wall and airy black chair 🙂
lovely to hear from you, anu. glad you like 🙂
