Case Study – House Koellreuter – Max Ernst Häfeli, 1932

  • Küsnacht-Goldbach, Zürich
  • The house Koellreuter is located in Küsnacht between the lake of Zurich and a forest.
  • There is a clear separation between working and living or a division between the rooms of the house owners and the ones of the employees. There is also a gender segregation. The master bedroom, for example, is divided in the women’s room and the men’s room, but the two rooms are connected by a sliding door, as are other rooms in the house.
  • Important elements are the flower windows in the living room, the garden in front of the house and the terraces on the first floor with a view to the lake.
