Bruno Taut House, Berlin, Germany
Taut’s Home is an outstanding example of German town planning during the 1920s. The home has been fully restored and furnished in the style of the 1930s, emboding a passion for historic details and vintage interior design. The distinctive white building with clean, angular lines recalls Bahaus Modernism. The large front yard has been restored according to the original blueprint with a small terrace, fruit trees, lilac bushes, and hedge of wild roses.
The home has two bedrooms and can accomodate up to 4 people. Sleeping arrangements include two double beds, a fold out bed, and a crib. Furnishings and facilities have been selected according to style and authenticity. The kitchen has a dinign area and vintage working oven. Heating is provided by the most up-to-date facilities but match the original design. Three old-fashioned tiled heating stoves provide warmth in the winter. Visitors interested in the history of the home will find a small reference library.
Color was an important element of Taut’s Home and the owners have preserved the original colors, selected in cooperation with cultural heritage specialists. The main bedroom is painted blue and features a large double bed (160x220cm), writer’s desk and tree top views. The living area is the “green” room and features a large sofa, dining table, and reading nook. The “yellow” room can serve as a spare bedroom with a samller double bed (140x200cm) as well as an additional living area. Thanks to its clever lay-out, the two bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, and cellar fit into an economical 65 sqm of floor space.
