Haus am Hang: A Traditional, New Family Home that Tucked into the Hills

Haus Am Hang 6

Haus am Hang is located in Stuttgart, Germany designed by MVRDV. This new family home has a traditional design with a smaller size that tucked into the hills. MVRDV needs three years to complete this home design from 2002 to 2005. Haus am Hang is also located near the vineyards in the Würtenberg.

Because of the site condition, every floor in Haus am Hang has its own access to the outside of the home. It makes those floors become ‘a ground floor’. The plot of the site is very steep, that’s why the architect uses the plot as maximum as possible.
