Overview

Haus Auerbach tells the story of an almost forgotten building: the private residence designed for Jewish scientist Felix Auerbach and his wife Anna. Built in 1924, the Auerbach House is one of only six private homes that Walter Gropius ever constructed. Here Gropius realized for the first time his famous "Baukastenprinzip," which combines the highest level standardization with the greatest possibilities for variation. The Auerbach House is thus one of the most important examples of early era "Neues Bauen." Furthermore, it is the only Gropius building with an original colored interior: all of the inside walls and windows were colored based on the ideas of Alfred Arndt, also a member of the Bauhaus. The house, which has always been well conserved, was recently restored to better match its original appearance.
