The Partly Transparent and Fluid Haus am Weinberg
Set on a rolling green hillside is a semitransparent white house with an undulating roof.
Its roof-wall is like a smooth white curtain of cream poured over a portion of a glass box.
The rolling hillside is echoed in the gentle swooping curves of the building.
A central support frees the four corners of the interior space from architectural elements that would otherwise block its views overlooking Stuttgart, Germany.
Its softly curved white undulating forms are as strangely lovely by night as by day.
Inside, there is a sense of protection from the exterior ‘curtain’ draped over the glass walls.
The smooth curved whiteness follows the viewer indoors.
A bleached oak floor is the only material other than the white stucco.
All of the plaster stucco had to be shaped by hand.
A tradition of bagged deer on the wall sounds a note of irony.
UNStudio designed the very intriguing Haus am Weinberg.
