Modernist villa in ​​Achen, Germany by architect Erich Schneider Wessling
Via ArchitectenWoning

Californian Modernism meets German Functionalism inside this rugged home in Germany’s Aachen, designed by Erich Schneider-Wessling.

The prolific German architect – who studied under maestro Frank Lloyd Wright and collaborated with Richard Neutra early in his career – designed Villa J in 1971. The concrete and brick property is stacked on a hilly slope to catch the sun and countryside views from its many roof terraces.

Ornamentation has been kept to a minimum across the interiors: polished concrete ceilings have been left exposed and cinder block walls painted white. Meanwhile floating canopies filter the light into the six-bedroom house.

Its living room is split across two levels and features floor-to-ceiling glass windows and sliding doors that open room to the outside – a motif used across the 363 sq m German property.

Villa J in on the market via Architecten Woning for € 1.75m, and its new owner might want to restore the original swimming pool, which is part of the 1,500 sq m plot. It has been turned into a garden bed by the present owners but could be reactivated.

Aachen is Germany’s westernmost city, sitting close to its border with Belgium and the Netherlands.
