Stacked Houses in Germany

Stacked Houses in Germany

This beautiful modern building, comprised of 12 stacked houses, was built by Herzog & de Meuron for the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein, Germany.

The concept of the VitraHaus connects two main themes: the theme of the archetypal house and the theme of stacked volumes.

    OMG. I would give them as much money as they need to build me a house like this! Amazing.

  2. Karl Noelle

    Absolutely drop-dead gorgeous.

    For all the “kewl,” it ends up being shared walls, ceilings and floors. Apartment living is apartment living, no matter how it looks.

    Nice tenements, chum.

  4. GustaveCo

    Gorgeous!

  5. Zunny

    the interesting thing about this is that at first glance it would seem quite dark inside-but if the photos are any indication, there is actually quite a lot of natural light thruout the spaces.
    I’d like to experience it from the inside.

    waste of space?

    Jim if you read a bit farther and take another look you will see that this isn’t apartments rather it is a store for a furniture designer so no shared walls, floors, or ceilings. So no awful living situation here.

    Apartment is an Apart - ment….APART from each other. Guys, reread the first few sentences, 12 STACKED HOUSES.

    This beautiful modern building, comprised of 12 stacked houses, was built by Herzog & de Meuron for the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein, Germany.

    it’s not exactly an apartment (to those who says it’s an apartment)

    It’s one building made to look like 12 stacked houses, it’s not an a apartment if it wasn’t made to function as one
