Architect Ernst Neufert (1900-1986) - one of the first students at the Weimar Bauhaus - built himself a two-storey home and studio in 1929 under the influence of Bauhaus teachings.
Modern architecture, high functionalism, economical and ecological construction and maintenance were the basis of the design. Completely in line with Bauhaus tradition, this house was a prototype - the trial wooden house was built in only six weeks.
A wooden boardwalk leads to the site and furnishes visitors with different views of the house.
In 1999, an exhibition building was added in the garden - the Neufert Box, referring to Neufert's famous octameter grid.
Information boards also show interesting interior views and report on the life and work of Ernst Neufert.
Today the Neufert Foundation is based here.
